  • wheels hitting tension rods

    i know some people have had this problem before what are some viable solutions im to the point that im just going to either make my own or make an a arm type lca. now that ive got that out the reason im to this point is i cant get full lock in my coupe without hitting the rod .its acting like a steering stop right now

    quit drifting

    seriously though are your rims 19's or do you have way too much steering angle?

            Less offset, wider fenders to allow less offset, narrower rim with better compound tire.

              So run a 10 or 15 mm spacer to bring my offset down to +15 or +10

                Yes, less offset on the same width wheel helps, as well as going to a narrower wheel with less or the same positive offset.

                  Spacers seems like the easiest way but it looks like you've already pulled your stock fenders pretty good so you'd need some 20mm over fenders.

                    ^could use something like this

                    Or wait for PBMs LCAs to drop.

                        The easy solution is spacers.

                        The harder solution is fabrication.

                        You can cut the LCA's and extend them like so:





                        This will increase your negative camber, but you can just take it out with your camber plates, and can probably then rotate them and use them to adjust caster.

                            not a great deal of leverage for the tension rod...

                              Why does the tension rod need leverage?
