What do you recommend? I am thinking on going 10mm all around (or 12mm)with car lowered on H&R srpings?

Any issues for tracking/rubbing?

Post pictures if possible.

Thanks for your help.

I have the H&R springs and 10mm spacers and I rubbed at all four corners till I got an alignment and then now the only time I rub is on some dips on the front right wheel. To guarantee that you won't rub you should get front camber plates

Do you think it would rub without the 10mm spacers?

No, I don't think it will. you could always get 5mm spacers if you want to be 100% sure. But there are others that run 15mm spacers and H&R springs and have no issues. Each car is slightly different.

Perfect looks and no rubbing !

I have the H&R's with 10 mm all around. No rubbing on the streets with stock. Went to COTA two weeks ago with 18" square setup. Found the rears rubbing, removed the rear spacers and almost no rubbing after that. I have 1.5 degrees of negative camber front and back. So, beware if you track it!

Thanks for info! I am getting the car aligned right after the drop. Might not track with 10mm spacers based on feedback. Still haven?t bought spacers yet either.

Drop was exactly as advertised by H&R: 0.8in all around. They might settle a bit more but I am very happy with the drop and how the car behaves. It will be ready for track next year.

I am planning on doing H&R springs also...maybe HAS kit. Not sure yet and see how it looks with the stock wheels. The only worry with the M2 and spacers is the way the fender lip is not rolled all the way up. A friend cut a tire at VIR on a track day but I can't for the life of me remember what his set up was. I know he had 20in ZCP wheels

With the H&R springs, the drop is not that bad.

I am running 19in 437M wheels.
