Rears



I'll take a pic of the whole car once I decide to get out of bed, last night was crazy lol
I got me a nice set of BC coilovers, love the way they ride, I think I need to stiffer the springs a bit more though because with a full load of people I get tire rub.

Most street coilovers have pillow ball upper mounts that eliminate noise as long as they are tight. The springs aren't noisy until they break.

Default 255/40/18 tires on 8.5 rims

I've looked through all the wheel fitment threads and don't see many GS 400s with this combination. Seems like most people put 245s on the front. Does this mean that 255/40/18s on 8.5 rims won't fit on the front of a moderately lowered GS 400? Thanks.
