Ok, so there are LOTS of threads that pop up randomly, or questions being asked about "will I rub if I run...."

So hopefully this will help to aid those looking for stance solutions.

Lets keep it Springs and Coilover only. No air ride, since you're ride height can change in milliseconds.

Springs: D2 coilover
Shock/Struts: D2
Wheel Sizes: 15X7 +10 Drag DR20
Tire Size: 180/60/R15
Other: Control arm, Sway bar end link bushings, Progress rear sway bar, Stripped rear interior
Driving style: Aggressive back road, SCCA events, Daily Driven
Pictures:



Comments:
Rubbed with out fender's rolled. Rubbed during aggressive bumpy turns. However, solid ride, nearly zero body roll, tuned to style spring preloads, and full firm dampening.

Springs: Tanabe DF210
Strut/Shock: Front OEM Tokico, Rear KYB GR-2
Wheel Size: Drag DR20 15X7 +10
Tire Size: 180/60R15
Other: Progress rear sway bar, Energy Suspension Control arm bushings and Sway bar end links. Stripped rear interior
Driving Style: Aggressive Back road, Daily Driven, Long Hauls.
Pictures:



Comments: Nearly perfect, could be a tad stiffer and 3/4" to 1" lower to have control arm's flat. KYB GR-2's provide good firm ride, and help to keep rear end semi-squared with the front. But not fully. http://www.clubxb.com/forums/f26/kyb-gr-2-review-27145.html <~~ Read the full review I did. No rubbing issues.

Springs: TEIN S-Tech

Wheel Sizes: 15X7 Sportmax 940
Tire Size: 185/60/R15
Other: Carbing Type V Front Strut Bar, Carbing Rear Frame Brace
Driving Style: Push it hard in the turns when I find myself in more rural areas
Comments: No rubbing, not even close. Common entry level spring/shock setup. Ride quality is great, much better than OE with aftermarket shocks.

Comments: I'm going for the soft spring & stiff bar combo, which is arguably the best daily/sport setup. The rears rub on huge dips on the highway due to the spacing (TC Sportline 25mm Front & Rear Wheel Spacer Adapters, Alliance AutoSports 19.05mm Rear Spacer Shims). Rear fenders are completely rolled, too. Ride now, I think I've found the ride I'm looking for, nice and neutral.

Edit: Right* (I want my edit button back)

This is such a beautiful shot. Shows all the awesomeness of a performance suspension, and somehow, its freaking spotless. Just another reason why I love your ride Kevin... It'd be better if you ditched them heavy ass TRD wheels though :D

^ Pics don't work. :confused:

It's not as spotless as the photo tells it to be :D I will be taking another shot just like it soon, as I recently upgraded my suspension setup. When the photos are complete, I will update my information here.

And quit knockin' me for my heavy ass wheels lolol. I bought these wheels with the box because I loved the look of them. I don't consider myself to be fickle with my wheels (or my money, for that matter).
