I'm back, and ready to continue!
So far the 4.11 gears, Foz lift, and 27x8.5/14 tires have been a blast!
What I'd like to do now is go a little bit higher on the body, and wider on the track width.
I have a few questions regarding both of those mods.
When I increase my track width, how much body lift do I need in order to
have my tires not scrub the fenders when the suspension is compresed?
What is the best way to go about track width increases? I have read that
spacers tend to blow out wheel bearings, and I've also read that we can
use WRX bits to increase track width.
Being a noob to body lifts, I understand that you need to lengthen the steering
shaft, and I'm guessing that is done by cutting it, and then sticking a
pipe in the middle to sleeve over each end, then welding. How about
shift linkages, brake lines, clutch line, and sway bars?
Ideally I'm looking to go anywhere between 2-6 inches up on the body, and maybe
an inch wider for track width. The idea being to try to retain current
cornering ability or even improve it a bit, and try to go a bit higher
while I'm at it. I'm very much opposed to cutting my fenders, though
rolling them wouldn't be out of the question.
I'm really liking the look of wagonryan, and tron's lifts. I notice ryan
has cut his fenders, but is also running much larger tires than me by
the look of it, and tron has maybe a little bigger tires and no cuts on the fenders,
though its hard to say if his track width is increased.
Any advice would be much appreciated, and I'd also like to know what SJR would charge
for a D/R swap, if I brought my car up there for a weekend or something to do it.
