I put 14 rims and 25" tall tires on my 87 EA82 Wagon. I rub alittle on the bumps with my dog in the back. I was wondering if anyone has done anything to stiffen up the rear springs. Has anyone run those screw in spacers? Wouldn't take much.

Was going to have my dog go one a diet but he ain't buying it.

Get a cat :-p

Swap on Honda Accord front sruts to the rear and you will gain some stiffness and height. (do a search for which year specificly)

Bash / cut whats rubbing so it no longer rubs.

If you have 4WD adjustable suspension then crank that in just a little untill you stop rubbing.

There's some possible solutions :drunk:

thats what i run, i dialed in the stock lift, and dont rub, even loaded down. but... if you dont have the factory adjustment... there is some spacing you can do with more than the stock number of rubber bumpers:brow:
