Your car looks great! I actually like the set up prior to the lowered pics, but it's your style so rock on. I wish i could do 22's on my GC but those wheels would NOT survive on the streets I usually find myself on.

I have always went with aftermarket wheels on every car I have driven, but this time I was thinking of just mounting some wheel spacers to bring the OEM 20's flush to the fenders to widen the stance and make her look a bit more aggressive.

has anyone else on this forum gone with wheel spacers? Just curious to hear your experience if you have. I can't go any bigger in diameter because of the local roads here, and i don't want to go out and get aftermarket 20's after paying for the ///M Sport package with OEM 20's.

Any feed back would be higly appreciated.

Enjoy that beautiful machine you got OP!

No rubbing at all.

Let me know what you guys think. Yes, yes .. I know the car is dirty. Hopefully I will get it washed this weekend take some better pics.

Once again, props to Need 4 Speed Motors. They are great!

Did you have any issues with sensors or anything like that when you swapped out your springs? I'm having trouble's with shops down here they don't want to touch my car.

That thread has been dead for 4.5 years, and the OP hasn't been on the site in almost 2 years. you would be better off starting a new thread and asking for help.

As far as sensors - there aren't any in the springs. Lots of people have done springs without issue. Name your location and I bet someone can recommend a shop for you.
