Tru, those are perfect pics and the EXACT drop I am looking for. (Well maybe not the rear with the fully loaded trunk.) The front is PERFECT! Is that the stock 1.5" front and 1.4" rear drop off of the H&R's or do you have them on lower perches on the Koni's? Thanks a million!

No, you will rub. I'm running 18x7.5 with a +42 offset, and I rolled and flared my rear fenders. If you compare my coupe's ass to another coupe, you'll see mine is about 1/2" wider on each side. I can tuck both rear wheels, but only because I did the body work to fit it.

not to interrupt...

That's weird...I had 18x7.5 +42mm on Jasmyn, lowered, and no rubbing
Also, the 19x7.5 + 44mm, no rubbing (in sig)

Oops - no fender lining on front

Cool....now, does it matter that I'm in a sedan? I forget if the wheel base area is bigger or not.

If I remember right, sedans are more prone to rubbing than coupe.

You can do it, just have your rear fenders professionally rolled.

Has anyone ever used this tool? Is this what I need to roll the fenders? If so, how was your success?

JT I need to check the perch location again. I believe I have both the front and rear purchases set in the middle. It is the out of box drop from the H&R springs (no mods to the springs). I am also using the spc ball joint camber kit. The spc kit allowed me to zero out the camber completely (excellent tire wear).

That thing is cool as hell. It looks like it would work. I used a big bottle jack to widen the rear fenders, and a small ball peen hammer on mine. If course, I was planning on repainting the entire car, so unless you're doing that, don't do what I did.
