Do you rub/bottom out? And how planted is the rear?

I do not rub at all. I can turn full both ways. The rear is set at -2 degree camber so they tuck under the fender. If you notice the factory fenders are "rolled". That helps a lot.

I'm not a fan of the silver/chrome grille, but the rest of that looks great! Nice job, man.

No. That's another reason I have -2 camber.

I was told you could. If you slam the rear you have to run - camber or they will rub the fenders.

Yep. When they come in take the smallest of the 2 springs off the coil as well as the blue spacer. Keep those if you want to go lower. Install them
That way and it will be down like mine. If you want lower in the front put only the small spring on the coil. Then you will be hella low!
