Save yourself the trouble of doing it several times,...cut the bottom end link bushing in half ..then turn .090 to .110 off the bolt head,..that's the maximum amount of clearance to be had

Iím finding evidence that itís hitting the actual LCA. Can I notch or dremel hole into this? Not hitting bolt or e-brake lines.

Update: I noticed a small 1/2 x 1/2” into the LCA with a dremel. Cut end link bushing in 1/2. Didn’t even shave down bolt head. And zip tied E brake cable. No rubbing at all. Thanks guys! Made a few passes last night & she is doing great. Only launching around 1100-1500 rpms. But no spinning and not hitting anything during launching with trimming.

Nice man! I was really looking at Race stars. Only reason I was told not to is due to my tuner insisting they have crappy lug nuts / washers that are a PITA to deal with. Not sure exactly what it is. But he pointed me at Forgestar (D5) and Weld’s. I was lucky enough to get a deal on some welds with the exact tires I wanted. So I bought them that day!

Thanks. (I just meant I wanted to see what your car looks like with the new wheels, though...)

Oh yeah!! That looks REALLY good (especially with the taillights, the Corsa tips, and the wicker adding to the look).

Off topic, but I really wish other exhaust manufacturers would do the slashed AND rotated tip design like Corsa (and like stock), so it follows the contour of the rear diffuser properly.

Thanks for the pic!

Thanks man! Yeah my favorite add on to the rear was the tail lights. I agree. The slashed tips on the corsa look great and flow with the rear diffuser properly. And hard to tell in pic. But itís the Andersonís Composite, carbon fiber wicker bill add on. So it matches the hood perfectly! Really ties it all in.
