I'll probably just end up doing the mid level road magnets and swapping the rear shocks eventually. I know the eibachs are a little lower in the rear, so that's an option too.

Thanks for all the help. I can't wait to get moving forward with it, hopefully not too long from now.

Well you learn something new every day.

I thought that only tyre profile height (40) along with rim size (22) determined the diameter of a tyre and not just tyre width (305) alone. Obviously not. I googled it

Thanks Cage for prompting me to learn a little more

Ah saw your other post but didn't realize you are gonna run 20's. To give you an idea on how those tire sizes would compare to mine just run a tire calculator to show you the differences since I'm running 22's. The 315's may rub on inner fender well also...any reason you don't want to do 305's?

Re: My GC

Haha no problem. Well the tire combo online that was on sale was the 315/35/20 along with the 275/40/20 so I was gonna go with that but I'm starting to realize it's not a good idea. I was originally gonna do the RM extreme drop but I talked to chad today and he informed me that I'd deff need new control arms. Even tho I really want to do it, I can't afford it right now. I guess I'm left with the RM MID level kit. Do you recommend a tire size in particular that's gonna go well with the mid drop and give my rear tires the fat aggressive look that I'm seeking for in the rear?? Appreciate all the help and info btw.

You don't have to get new control arms...I haven't but it would help get alignment back close to spec. If a little camber doesn't bother you then you won't need them. As for tires what wheels are you gonna run? If you stay 20's and go to small on tire sidewall height it will not look good cause your wheel well gap will be nasty. If you are doing stock 20's I wouldn't change tire sizes...just push out with spacers to place wheels flush with fender and then drop that bad boy!

I have 265/60/18 stock all the way around. I plan on doing the wk srt8 20's with the mid level drop. What are you thoughts? Keep that side wall height around 40/35 or increase it to the stock wk srt8 tire size of 255/50/20?? Tires are never easy to work with.
