    Sometimes people forget that this is my first car and that I'm blissfully ignorant of most import car terminology. Apparently I just stumbled on another term that means something vastly different than I intended.

    What I meant to ask was whether you were using spacers to increase your track width, not "slam" the car and slap 3-4 degrees of negative camber on it! That aside, what are the chances we could get a picture of your inside clearance with those wheels?

    Lol. I'll have my wheels back from the powder coater in a few weeks. No pics of the wide wheels yet.

    ctsv247, I'm sure there is from many years ago. What do you want to see? It's black with black wheels, black calipers, orange motor, black upper interior trim panels and dropped about 2".

    This is how low it is with stock wheels and tires.







    It has clear fogs now.

    Your car looks sic!

    I like the stock wheels,I've got a couple of spares and widening them makes a lot of sense for me. what size tire do you think you'll end up with?

    Re: Creative steel trailing arm group buy!

    I have always enjoyed the term "raked", old muscle style is what reminds me of I suppose. When I think of straight nasty it usually "tubbed" - I have actually not heard much of stance...

    Re: Creative steel trailing arm group buy!

    Stance is a ricer term. I'm fortunate enough to have done both the muscle car and import thing so I know "rake" and "stance" are interchangeable here.....

    And by that he means he is old enough to remember stancing his horse! No hooves on the front, never trimmed in the rear! lol
