In order for me to get them to fit it took a 1/2 wheel spacer and longer wheel studs. I cant remember off hand the back spacing on the wheels(I bought them from Mustang Tuning) And of course the quad shocks are gone. Now if you have a lowered car then rubbing will be an issue. I have coilovers in the back also and the lowered stance was causeing rubbing issues. I raised the rear up a inch and cut out the part of the rear fender that folds in at the top. This is where they would rub. Some people say to take a bat and fold them in but I didnt like this methed. If I have to do it all over again it would be much easier cause now I know what to do.
