So I have recently purchased 527 xxr's in matte bronze and I was planning on buying lowering springs. I was going to purchase the Eibach 1.2 in lowering springs, but I'm not sure about what spacers to get. I'm running 255 in the back and 225 in the front, if anyone could give me a link or any tips on the spacers, I was looking for about 1-1.5 inch spacers. Thanks

if you would buy the correct/better width and offset, you wouldnt need spacers

On that note, wheel specs? Can't put a spacer on a wheel without the specs.

Or read this and do the math: https://my350z.com/forum/wheels-and-...t-novices.html

I still dont know how you guys dont scrape every living thing with your exhaust or chassis being this low. I have 3 full fingers from my wheels/fender gap and I scrape this stupid speed bump every morning at work. God forbid it be an actual high driveway. Even if I go dead slow and do the sideway shimmy over it.

Rub is non existent but the exhaust scrape is unreal.

I'm goin to try coil overs first. I think it'd look better if it was lower. I really don't want to run spacers.
