I would rather not use the wheels spacers since I wouldnt be able to slam the car for when I go to the car show on the 22nd.

Yes you can remove the horizontal quad shocks and you should have plenty of room.. They don't do much, plus those are probably original so they are probably blown by now anyway, so they are just taking up space. Pull them off. They are no good.

Those are Quad Shocks, remove them and get some upper and lower control arms.
