    sounds a daft question.. how much generally does the suspension travel upwards.. got -45 pi springs.....asking due to...


    tis a lil close .. if an issue options are.. raise suspension(nooooooo!)... flare arches slightly...reduce tyre width or give it some neg camber.. would rather keep as is though so any help muchly welcomed

    I'd suggest altering the arch or getting a few mm machined off the wheel to allow it to sit further in as that will catch. Altering the camber will just kill the tyres.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Does it rub? A tip I always like was to get some chalk and rub it on to the outside of the tyre the take it for a drive along a rough road, that way you can see how much the tyre is rubbing and where it is rubbing against.

    Worked on my mk3 fiesta, I then had to get the rear arches trimmed

    Is it just the front you think you'll have issues with?

    My astra used to catch on front because of the weird way the platic inner arch connects to the wing. I just cut a couple of inch in to take out the lip... Think the vec has similar but only feels like 1cm or so...?!?
