Traded a guy stock rear struts and front kyb's.. with Tanabe lowering springs... for Isc N1 coilovers :) the guy didnt like how stiff coils are cause he has a long commute every day. i dont mind haha. i currently am rubbing on the left rear and i dont understand why?!?! any thoughts?? i dont have anything that would make it more camber on that side..i clear plenty on the right side. i mean just a little on the rubber nothing thats gonna harm. i ordered 5mm spacers,rear camber bolts and i have Rear adjustable lateral links on the way! should be here this week :) I also need to get an alignment as soon as i get it set to my likings have a little binding on the springs which sucks.

sooch-i haven't yet no i plan to within the next few days... i have the adjustable lateral links/camber bolts coming so i wanted to install those first and play with the Camber a little if i need to.. i just kinda threw it on today while i had time everything set nicely. i figured an alignment would help.some people say it didnt change anything when they got one. just seems weird just installing one side would rub and the other not. i hope its the alignment thanks!

check the height and dampening to make sure they are all at the same level. Either the left one is fucked or the settings are off.

im thinking i have the height a tad off im crossing my fingers at least haha its not much diff from the other side(rubbing wise). ill find out tomorrow when i adjust the front camber a little and and also just play with the 32 way dampening adjustments and see if i notice difference around corners some people take the time to find a difference some dont notice or care. ill find out tomorrow! Thanks for the help!

Looks good man! Hope you can take care of the rubbing issue.
