      he's just saying if you raise it you wont rub because even if it has less camber its further away from the fender and give you more clearence.

      Yep. Your fenders are ****ed.

      Just start saving and plan on new fenders every spring

      Except those are his quarters, not his fenders (Marc stop saying fenders damnit, lol). That would be an expensive replacement every year.

      I don't think he'll do much beyond burning up the paint in the rear.

      it'll camber in the same amount whether you compress the spring by the coilover perch or by a bump in the road

      the rears are rolled from factory. you could always pull them slightly. my rear is et18 with a 205/45/17. i havent driven it much but it hasnt rubbed at all yet.

      hoodrich's car stuck out 10mms more in the rear on 18s. his front was a 8.5 et4 on a 205/35. so his front is roughly the same as mine except i have more stretch and im not on 18s.

      Its hard to find a picture of his car showing the front fender damage. Most of them are fixed in p-shop.

      Not hating on his car, to much poke for me but I just wanted to show you his rear panel and how its pulled and the damage in the front.

      Stuff happens when you roll hard…..so yeah, expect this stuff
