DIY: Rubbing fenders? Easy fix.

Need to lift the rear so that the wheels don't hit fenders and still keep your drop? Here's how.

Go to Pep Boys and pick up a set of Spring Blocks $10.00.


Jack up rear. (Jack stands good idea)



Here is what your looking for.


Place blocks in springs about 45 degrees apart from each other.


Lower car and make sure the blocks are in place.


After everything is done, clean up and enjoy zero rubbing.

If I have any rubbing issues (hopefully not) then I would look into those. Nice write up and sweet ride.
