    I wanted to go ahead and put some closure to this thread.

    The ol' girl is gone. Car is still sitting in the driveway but I don't believe shes worth fixing. The battery tray is wrinkled behind the passenger side strut tower and there is a very slight bend in the roof line. The passenger side frame horn is folded up and touching the engine and the oil pan/oil pump were knocked clean off the block.
    I'll strip the drive train and any other good parts and look for another one to swap everything over to.

    For now, Snow White (353) will be getting the suspension. Everything else will be put into storage.

    I've had it happen in other threads and I suspect it's the fact I'm linking to Facebook. I need to go back and actually upload the photos to each post.

    GC coil overs with Koni Yellow SAs -

    The IE setup was too soft for my liking and the body roll made the car difficult to throw into quick turns.

    For shnitzngiggles I weighed the wheels and tires.

    The rims weighed 17lbs for a 15x9 and 225/45/15 BFG Rivals weighed 20lbs each.

    15x9 et 15. I needed a 5mm spacer in the front to clear the struts. Currently running a 225/45 BFG Rival. I still need to do a little more work dropping the car down. I rolled the rear fenders and rolled and pulled the front.


    Test fit

    Hits the front strut - used 5mm spacer (could have used 3mm but wanted extra room for rim saver on the tires)

    Long story short, I accidentally ordered some rims which should be here Friday. We'll see how they fit.

    I did some searching to get an idea of what to expect when my wheels get here. In my search for information I came across two helpful websites.
    I should add that I have converted from lug bolts to lug studs with traditional conical nuts. (Thank you Motorsports Hardware)

    Are hub centric rings needed?

    Will my ridiculously larger rims fit with my stupid stretched tire? (not really, but just in case one was curious)
