Trust me, it would be MUCH worse without spacers. <p>15mm spacers DO NOT WORK on the front wheels, you will rub on outside fender everytime you hit a bump or dip.

However, 3 others here did have Eibachs/Evolves and still reported SLIGHT rubbing, even with 10mm spacers. <p>Without the lowering springs, no rubbing with 10mm spacers.

Re: Installed the Eibach's and 10mm spacer,still rubbing a litlle?Why? (JRL)

I already lowered the car with Eibachs and I have some rubbing. I just got my 5mm spacers from Brice(Alamo/Svenske). Will see if that helps. <p>JRL....The TME springs don't drop the car as much as the Eibachs, are they also slightly less stiff? Remember, I bought those springs(Eibachs) from you....I'm just wondering.... Perhaps in the future I may swap them for the TME's....if it wasn't such an expensive proposition, especially after doing it once already...<p>Pete

Eibachs here with aftermarket wheels +38mm offset, which effectively gives me an 8mm outward shift (equivalent to an 8mm spacer). Absolutely no rub on mine.
