Post some pics if you end up getting some man! I'm gonna get spacers for mine at some point, just don't know when. I've been thinking about 15's, i really wanna widen it out.

Oh, and check out the Pacific Northwest forum sometime! We have some pretty big get togethers that we've had a few canucks come down for, we're always looking for more brethren from north of the border!
Good stuff, I'll look into that!

Yeah and spacers are off of list of things to get. I 'might' be able to get away with 5mm spacers in rear but that's about it. With initial heights of 24" in front and 24.25" in rear, I was rubbing. The fronts were rubbing where the upper corner of the bumper meets the corner of the fender. The rear was rubbing slightly on the corner where the bumper meets the fender as well, and also on the inside edge of the fender where I rolled . I guess I need to roll it more even though it's a tough area to stretch out being a 5-door.

Today I sanded/dremeled those down to make more clearance. I also raised the fronts by a 0.25" and the rear by about 0.50". We'll see how that goes.

Fyi H&R and eibach have wheel spacers from at least 5mm-30mm. Just takes looking. Also if anyone is going to use 10mm or 20mm in the rear then id get he pumaspeed kit. The spacer in the puma kit mounts between the spindle and the trailing arm which is much safer and will not cause your wheel bearings to wear out prematurely. Cost abit more and requires more effort to install but its worth it imo.

Hmmm... never thought of that. Wouldn't be all that hard to have someone make either.
