you really only need to roll the fenders with fat rear tires. it's cheaper in the long run. it only costs $120 max to roll both the rear fenders.....that's half the cost of a tire....so it's worth it.

fender rolling can also make the fender slightly stronger around the wheel wells so if a shopping cart hits it it moght not bend.

CC plates are required but you should get them. i would replace the shocks. and it will ride like crap it the stocks shocks are blown regardless.

its cheaper to roll the fenders and not need it than not roll them and cut up $250 tires.

Not totally sure what you're trying to say here, but...

-You might as well be safe and just roll the fenders, it's cheaper to do it right the first time
-Wheels spaces might help with the fitment??? Can anyone speak on this more??? Jazzer? lol
-Caster/Camber (CC) plates will be needed for lowering the car
-Lowering the car will decrease the life of the struts and shocks, and depending on how many miles they currently have, it may be a good idea to replace them and do everything at once. (Less labor and wear/tear on the car)







Oh, and I think the car will look better if you would lower it some. Not sure if this has been discussed yet...

CC's are Caster Camber plates. Maximum Motorsports sells the best ones i have ever used.
