wow guys...what if i WAS thinking about cutting my fenders and getting fender flares, hmmmmm what then...that solves the fender bending that could happen once lowered and would then solve the mexi poke look, but the lowering will obviously come first on the list as i DO have coils and they are going on the week of the 23rd this month...ill post better pics of the car before and after that...so until then can we please stop bashing on a car that has potential

But you weren't thinking about that. You never mentioned it before and all you were doing was arguing with everyone who told you what would happen. Remember this:

yea i dont think your right on that one demented...cause as it sits right now its doesnt and wont rub and once i lower it, same, even if i change the tires to make them fit to the lip, cause they do make a 17x9" wide tire, trust me on that one cause bob the guy i bought them off of sells tires and he knows his shit so yea...
So what is your overall plan?
What size tire are you going to use?
Are you going to cut fenders or not?
Are you going to add fender flares or not?
Are you going to add camber to help fitment?

The worst thing you can do is start charging at mods without having a game plan on how everything will work. That can waste a lot of money, cause damage, and also look terrible depending on what you do...

1: my overall plan is to have a wide stance without camber or try to not have any i should say cause it will be hard and to not have any camber when you start lowering the car i know this...

2:255/45/R17 would be the ideal tire for my wheels

3: mostly likely i will cause ive seen what happens to the fenders once the car is lowered and nice size bumbs can do once hit

4: i can add fender flares cause if i cut the fenders it will look hideous with out flares or what i could is not cut them at all and where the fender divit in i could hammer them out with out having to cut anything

5: replacing the old camber arms with some after market once will def help my case here for lowering and keeping that tire flat on the ground...
