    Default Lowering on Big Wheels

    Hi

    My 40mm lowering springs have arrived and now I am worried about putting them on with 19" wheels.

    Anyone had any problems with a similar style question and if you had problems how did you fix them??

    Thanks

    The thing is a friend of mine did the above and ended up with a grinding sound from the front when turning the wheels or going over speed bumps.
