what are the offsets?

Are you on coilovers already? If not, are you planning to get some? (edit: just saw that you have Racelands. They'll definitely work and get the job done)

What size tires are you getting?

Oh, do you have some camber and toe arms also? You're going to need those more than likely.


I think you have the potential to do it up right. It won't be easy, but it looks doable. BTW, I think stagger on a FWD car looks great. Sure, the fenders are technically the same, but there's enough room to fit a much bigger wheel in the rear than the front due to the suspension design/placement.

Keep the progress pics coming dude!!!


If you have questions along the way, shoot me a PM. I don't know everything (far from it), but I know lots of people that know more than me and I'll do my best to get you an answer. It's good to see more people "stance"-ing Foci

It all depends on the offset. Offset is the key lol

I think is going to look sick! Do you have to roll your fender when using a setup like this?
