To Level, or not to Level ??

Well, got the new Lexani 22" R05 staggered wheels on today w/ Nitto 275/40 Fronts and 305/40 rears. Now I am debating lowering using road magnet springs w/ the mid level (1" Front / 1.8" rear) drop.

I ordered to road magnets so will post pics to compare once they are installed. Let me know what you guys think! Thanks

With the RM mids, camber is maxed out, could use control arms possibly.

Fantastic! The lower springs really made it look so much better with the Lexanis. How are you liking the ride?

Thanks! I love the look too...My issue is the camber on the rear. After install my alignment is a bit off, pull to the right a tad..and my steering wheel now vibrates above 70mph. But as soon as I get these issue figured out I should be good!

Re: To Level, or not to Level ??

So have you not aligned it since installing the new springs?

Yes I had an alignment done after the springs, but it's pulling some so need to have them realign again. Hopefully that solves the issue, I'll definitely let you know.

Sorry to ask, just making sure. But yes please let me know.

Someone on here who just had the Eibachs put on their diesel was having problems and got it all figured out eventually. Hoping to hear the same from you as well.

Best of luck with it.

Well had another alignment done, still pulls slightly to the right above 50 mph. Also, the vibration in the steering wheel is bad. I just got in some hub centric rings. Going to put those on and rebalance to see if it fixes the issue.

Overall I like the look, but not sure if it is worth the alignment and balance issues.

Sorry to hear about the prolonged troubles with the new setup.

And I agree about it not being worth it solely for the look. The performance is the most important gain and if it isn't where it's supposed to be, then it's not worth the loss.

Hope you get it all worked out soon!
