Mike, take off your quads and get some aftermarket Rear control arms. My car, 17x9, 6.0 back space, 275/40/17's. No problems.

My wifes car, 17x8.5, 5.75 back space, 275/40/17 quads flipped. No problems.


Go for it dude!!

The quads were put there to reduce wheel hop, your control arms are what position the axle under the car...I don't know who said that above^^^

Flip 'em or just get rid of them and get a decent set of U/L's like odogg said and you'll be good on the wheel hop issue.
