    Like i said, the rear wheels were touching the trailing arms, so i had to use a spacer, and yes the fronts would have fitted with the stock calipers, HOWEVER, i swapped my front calipers for a 8 piston Brembos...With two piece rotors front and rear with slotted discs...Am actively lookin for new rotors for later...

    Its a weird on but thankfully i have a machine shop on call

    Has anyone blown the fenders out instead of going in? I would also like to get more meat on the street....

    Sure, plenty have and some, not all, actually look OK. I might would consider this route if I felt I knew a body man who didn't mind forming sheetmetal and had a good eye for body lines because a good sheetmetal flare is about the only thing i would consider for the long haul. Bondo and fiberglass/plastic don't hold up well when mated with sheetmetal IMHO not to mention the hassle of blending/matching paint.

    Personally, I've found it's easier to find guys to do what I would call structural metal work where the aesthetics aren't so crucial....IE....doing minitubs and/or subframe mount relocations. Undercoat is easy....

    Based on that, if I ever feel the need to go with anything larger than 295s maybe 305s, I'll be going in, not out.
