The other side clears, just though. I have to look, maybe the shock isnt properly centered through the body hole. But no matter how I slice it, I think I need to run a small spacer. With the 18*11 wheels and running a tire thats about a 305 ( its not a 315 ) in size. Im hoping to not have a clearance issue to the fender. Now the coil overs are on the upgrade list, however I spent enough so far I want to hold off on those for next year, only one event I will make with this car this year. I did get my fire bottle and radio gear for the car this weekend ! Just autosports labs stuff Im wating for.Yea….that sucks. I was able to pull my helper springs and get clearance.
any possibilities of using a shorter spring? Not the best solution but not a huge budget hit.
If that's the OD, it's probably a standard 2.5" ID spring. Hypercoil lists a 2.5" ID 6" long 350lb spring at 3.35" OD, and an 8" long 100lb at 3.384" OD. Different rates & lengths from manufacturers using slightly different alloys will probably differ a few tenths.Could be my coil overs are a bigger coil than what most people run. 3.38 inch, 86mm is the coil diameter.
