Im a bit too aggressive in the rear so when the rear dips enough it scrapes along the fender lining. It sounds gnarly at those speeds so that's the sound you keep hearing every so oftern. Funny enough i check the fender lining periodically and the rubbing isnt tearing through it like i thought...go figure...just sounds horrible. It was my fault anyway...im not at a height where i should be canyon running or tracking the car so i knew going in i was going to hear some harsh noises... I'll have it track ready soon

The exhaust should be in stock within 1-2 weeks. I was just told by Ark Performance. and you will love the suspension dude!! super light and incredibly strong.
Hey,

I see, thats good to hear, not from exhaust, haha.
well need to see if there will be AWD version coming out soon? hope it will out soon, want better sound lol....

ya, i pre order the AVS version of the suspension, waiting for it!!!! hope i can receive it soon.

Custom one off APR Performance CF front splitter with 11mm support rods. From the front of the bumper to the edge of the splitter is 5 inches...thats the smallest measure on the splitter...some points get to 9inches. Aeroflow Dynamics side splitters in aluminum with a gloss black powder coat finish. Both great products and great companies to work with.

Roshiro, did shaving the fenders solve your rubbing issues in the rear?

no not really. the rear fender and especially the bumper cut back into the car so much. i saw another IS somewhere in canada and he pulled the fenders along with a bracket so the rear bumper would match the pull and he tucks. its an aggressive move but he tucks.
