Yep thats your problem. That tire size is too big. 285/40's work but rub slightly over big dips. 295/40 is just too big and will rub much more often. New springs aren't going to do anything for you might as well save you the time. The correct size though is what I am running 305/35/22 so you can use a spare if you have to as well (this is the only size that allows it).

Rubbing isn't really my issue its the fact that it looks completely stupid, and when I hit a dip in the road the whole back end almost jumps up off the ground because there is no suspension travel. It only rubs if there are no bump stops in it. I was going to run 305/35/22 like you but for some reason Discount tire could not find a tire that had the proper weight rating for the Turbo Diesel, if it wasn't a diesel I could have run those.

Ok but just so you know the tires are 1 inch bigger than they are supposed to be. And from first hand experience I can tell you they are too big for the RM Mids and won't fix the rubbing even if setup properly.

Wait til you have someone sit in the rear and hit a dip at highway speeds lol. It's gonna rub no questions about it. I don't understand why people don't buy the correct tire sizes.

I have already and it did barely rub once but that is part of the reason I am getting the air bags to be safe. Either way I am trying to figure out why it looks like this...

Sounds like the springs are switched to me....

Re: Road Magnet Mids, and Bilstein Shocks, Bottoming out, help!

That was my first thought as well, but I measured the springs with a micrometer to make sure they were in the right place. Thin ones in the front thicker in the back. I even sent pictures to black ops and he said they were in right as well. All the spacers are also in the right place. There is no install problems at all. I honestly think maybe they got packages wrong, like I got the aggressive rear springs and the mid fronts by accident. He was saying that the Billstein 4600's weren't good enough. I told him that's what everyone uses and he still insists that's the problem. He has been nothing but helpful and is sending me new back springs just so we can rule out the problem.

Do me a huge favor, when you get the new springs measure the height and inside diameter near the middle cool of the spring.

Which airbags dos you get? Like I said before the standard WK2 kit from airlift or Firestone won't fit road magnets.

Re: Road Magnet Mids, and Bilstein Shocks, Bottoming out, help!

I measured mine already and that's the specs I gave to Airlift, but I added an inch and a half. They told me to jack it up like I wanted it to sit and then do the measurements. I got the ones that were 3.5 inch width and 9.75 high. Right now I have less than 8 inches of height, and that is with a one inch spacer in it. I also got the wireless one controller so I don't have to have any ugly gauge in it lol. I do appreciate everyone's help. I've been working on cars since I was a child, am 40 years old now and never had a stock height vehicle, and this is the first time I've had this problem. I've also worked at multiple race shops. Just letting y'all know I'm not a newbee lol.

Re: Road Magnet Mids, and Bilstein Shocks, Bottoming out, help!

So are you having an onboard compressor built in? Or just digital pressure gauge?

I would like to add this for light towing with the road magnets but didn't know the measurements or kit I should go with?

I'll try to get under my car and measure my how mines sitting now
