That is too much backspacing. I would do something along the lines of 7-7.25", depending on how u were lowering it. You can get some more clearance by reversing the shock bolt so the threaded part is inside the framerails.

yeah, that's what i figured. just another excuse to go with 22's. :ninja: i'll let you know when i'm ready to do something (won't be for a while)


btw, are there any down sides to clearcoating billet wheels, i.e. clouding, yellowing??? i'm looking for as low maintainence as possible.

The way we do our clearcoat, there is very little downside. Its eliminates about 5-10% of the shine id say, but its worth it for the lack of maintenance. I would never clear wheels for a showtruck, but for a driver, id recommend it.
