Hey guys, when i bought my car it had 19 inch staggered wheels on it. what should i do when i get coilovers. should i get a camber kit or skunk2 rear arms, or not worry about it due to my staggered setup of 19x8 and 19x9 setup. Trust me i know 19's are huge, i am trying to sell them but for now i want the best for the application i have. thanks!

You're asking what you should do when you get coil overs...does that mean you're on stock suspension? Leave it be until you get the wheels that you want or whatever, then ask this question again.

And don't be too sensitive about what other people tell you, take it like nothing happened. The more you try to 'defend yourself' or 'stand up for yourself' the more people will jump in and flame you. If someone says your car sucks and you know it doesn't...then just play along right? Sometimes it's nice to stand up for one's self but this is the internet. Lot's of opinions...all of which doesn't really matter and will always be subjective.

well it depends on how low you want to go.
if you lower it between 1inch to 1.5inches you will not need a camber kit.
anything more you will run into camber issues. but only in the rear
either skunk2 or Comptech/SPC both are quality camber kits. both will do fine.

if you are planing to go lower then 1.5", having the camber angled might help with your 19x9 wheels because your wheels would fit better.and less chance of rubbing

yea they are but i will probably go staggered again, i like the feel of having the wider back tire, i just dont want 19's, but if i go down to 17's i wont go staggered. so many options.....:pat:

I've got 19"s, not staggered, but what I got was Megan coilovers and I'm planning on getting the skunk2 arms when I'm not so poor. :(



As you can see, I definately need a camber adjuster. :p I wouldn't mind 19x9 because of the extra traction, but god damn it must be a ***** and a half to turn without rubbing.(but you've got 9 in the back only, right?)

i am looking at the B&G's or Tein SS's but i think i am going to go with those Skunk 2's too. at the moment with no suspenison it only rubs with alot of weight and some very hard turning other than that its smooth. how is yours? does it ride nice?

if i can sell them i will, but it came with the car like i said, so i have to use them for now since i have no stock wheels. they look damn good on the car, i just want stock wheels and 18" gram lights. but if i am stuck with these wheels i better make it handle the best i can

yeah it all depends on how much you want to drop the car, but with 19s tire to fender already has a very small gap to give the expression that its dropped.
