where'd you get the spacers?<br>I've heard that they are not good for the car, is this true? <br>I'd LOVE to have the flush look in the back, my fronts are already money....

yeah i would go for a 20mm in the back if i had the chance again. i still need to fix my rear camber too, so it should be a bit closer to the fender

Re: (selrahc)

Please be careful installing spacers on these cars. Remember, you're losing 25mm of threads on the studs, this is quite a lot of holding force that's no longer holding. Very dangerous.<p>Also, remember that the outward offset will change the handling of the car significantly. You'll get more torque steer, increase load on the wheel bearings, and increase tire scrub.<p>Definitely don't do this for the looks. It goes way deeper than that.<p>Tom.
