i work at plymouth and belden ct,,(between wayne and levan on north side...thanks for pics all,,does anyones car rub in the rear,,thats what im afraid of cause it looks like it will be on the quarter or close....may need a little more rear camber to fix though...!!?? jess

i live at plymouth and telegraph!!!!!!!!! jess
like the 18"(the frush),,,,wish ida got some but couldnt beat the price on the free speedlines 17"..??!!!!!
I have a 2002 ZTS and I am looking for a solid suspension also. Something that I can autocross with, I found a NEX coilover kit (a full kit, no factory suspension used) that a friend of mine has on his subi I like them alot....its stiff!!!!!
I only found this suspension for ZX3's and ZX5's though, I'm trying to find out if it will work on my ZTS. I am a little concerned about how this would effect camber

Those pics that Frush posted are of my car, y0. Don't be givin him credit. Ha ha ha.
Anyways, I never really had any problems with rubbing, except for the front from time to time which would rub in a quick dip/bump in the road, or in hard (and yes, I mean hard) cornering. I was running 18x7.5 with 40mm offset, wrapped in 215/35/18 rubber. Same setup, but with 42mm offset was never a problem.

i installed the eibach sportline kit on my car and it rubs like hell in the rear damn it cant win,,i also did an alignment and rear left had -2.4 camber and right had -1.4 camber,tried to move cradle but realized the pivot points are on the cradle  tried to move bolts slightly and this still didnt work,,either way it rubs on both sides,,so this wheel and spring combo wont work.... jess
