Default For those who think you need BIG springs and BIG camber.... proof you don't.

How stiff do you need to be??????????

I think this proves that some of the rates that folks want to run are completely insane. I set this car up, it's way under 450 front springs (maybe even under 400, but I'm not going to spill all the setup info), with my front bar.

Looks pretty flat to me, and that's on 315 Hoosier A6's on Concrete... and one of the best part of the pic is you can see the state of the loaded front wheel/tire which I think illustrates well that you don't need -3.5+ camber (this car isn't even @ -3) to go with the "soft" springs.

Just thought you might like to see it: http://www.stranoparts.com/searchbymodel.php?ModelID=5

315's on all four? They don't look like the protrude past the fenders, which wheels are those?

315/30-18's all around. They are on the Enkey PF01's, 10.5" http://www.stranoparts.com/partdetai...=144&ModelID=5

And, the rears do protrude a little bit but not way, way out at all. Fronts would but the negative camber keeps the tops tucked in. Honestly on a street car, I'd recommend you stay with a 9.5" if you like the Enkei's or we have 10's that will not stick out.

FWIW, I carry Forgestar, the entire line so we can have custom offsets made if you want.

Looks like 285/35's on those Enkei wheels would be very close to being entirely under the sheetmetal with the car sitting still.
