    Thread: CC Owners: Suspension/Wheels/Tires - with specs & pictures

      I wonder just how many of us on coils are hitting their axels on the passenger side. Next time you have the wheels off look at your axle for the silver ring where you've hit the subframe.

      I'm on H&R Ultra lows and have a 1 finger gap, I had to go there so I wouldnt hit axle anymore.

      Just a heads up!

      yup i got some rings for my wheels yesterday and the 66.56 were WAY to small. im thinking its more a 80mm to 56.1 or so. i'll be taking the wheel today to wheel warehouse and find a ring that fits.

      Jeez static that low. Florida roads must treat you well.

      I can't drive through my campus, nor can I get to my favorite gas station or I will scrape hard.

      What suspension are you on?

      Fl roads are pretty good, but there are some roads/drives in town I avoid. Louisiana i-10 was the worst I've driven on so far, with hwy380 east of Roswell in New Mexico and i-20 around Dallas/Ft. Worth tieing for a close second. Yikes!

      I know the underside of my front lip is getting thin, and I have to be careful with speedbumps to keep from getting high-centered. But the notch helped a lot with comfort. Coils are just the cheapo racelands that I bought to test on my mkv. I couldn't resist putting them on when I traded it in and brought home the CC. They're still kicking, but I'll be changing them out finally at 40k.

      MUST... GET... LOWERING... SPRINGS...

      Haha, just had to get that out of the way. I'm sure I'll get all the comments like:
      Nice 4x4!
      When are you going to drop it!
      etc...

      Rubber is 235/30R20
      Wheels are Ultra Monarchs
      Roof is painted black.
      Tint is 30% all around and 50% on the windshield.
      Tails and blinkers are tinted.

      For the record, I am ordering springs today, just trying to find a good deal first. The problem is that I have a townhome with a very short driveway (like 15 feet) and its at a 30 deg incline from the street. That coupled with the gutter at the end of the driveway makes for a scrape trap of death. I really would like to get bags, mainly for functionality of getting in and out of my garage/driveway and also the insane speed bumps in the community. However, bags just aren't in the checkbook in the near future. Therefor, I am thinking about getting the Eibach springs for just a slight drop. That way I'll still be able to get in and out of my garage and also cut the 2" wheel well gap in half. I am open to thoughts and feed back though. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics. Thanks guys!

      Edit: Made a new post with updated images.

      Looking good Aonarch! Almost wish hadn't gotten a luxury so I could run a roof rack again. Toting the bike in the trunk is a lot clumsier.

      I posted some images on the previous page but took them down so I can show these new ones.

      Ultra Monarch wheels, 235/30R20 rubber.
      Eibach springs (my driveway has a HUGE dip, can't go any lower with bags)
      Roof painted black.
      35% tint all around, 50% on windshield.
      Tint on front blinkers and tail lights.
      HID kit from DDM Tuning.
