if i go a little higher than finger gap do you think less than -2 camber in the rear will work? I really wanna minimize the chance of rubbing the suspension. I'd imagine rubbing the suspension = real bad right?

i wanna go lower than pro kit drop (1" drop) though... and i would think i need camber in the rear since ive heard people that get just Sportlines need to get rear camber kit in the rear to not rub.... but not 100% sure.

prolly gonna install coils/wheels 1st without rear camber kit to see how it goes...then if i need it install rear camber kit...

Anyone else have any advice?

FG2/Buddy Club N+ between 1.5 in to 2 in drop/ 17x9 +35/ 235/40/17 S-drives

I'm lowered on Bc coils my wheels are 17x9 +35 wrapped with 225/35 s drives 2.8 degrees of camber in the rear and 0.8 in the front about one finger gab all around. I have no problems with rubbing I have a fa5 not fg tho, not sure if that really matters. I think you should be fine running 235/40's.

Edit I have no rear camber kit.

Has anybody tried doing 17x9 +35 (f) and 17x9 +45 (r)? I did some measuring and it should be flush (not hellaflush) both front a rear, but just wanted to see if anyone had tried it.

^Ive read posts before about that being a good setup as well....but i am personally gonna go with 17x9+35 all around just after hearing that rubbing the suspension might be an issue. I would think that +45 in the rear would be even closer inwards to the suspension.

It probably would be flush but the +35 is perfect once you add a bit of rear camber it just looks dead sexy IMO.

Someone is running that set up on here... Might have been a few months when it was posted but I forgot who it was... He said that that the +35 has a little bit more lip than the +45 but its not that noticeable unless you stare at them.
