      So what is the verdict (pros/con) between ST coilovers and H&R Ultra Lows?

      The rear camber has nothing to do with the suspension you get.

      You can buy ULs from tire rack or ECS.

      Make sure to choose the JSW specific ones.

      Thanks.

      I am still deciding on what wheels to get, but is probably going to be 18's. From what I have been reading on the web, I guess the best would be a et35 setup with 225/40/18 tires?

      That might rub.

      You want 8.5" ET 45 in order to use 225/40-R18

      an 18x8.5 +35 with a 225/40 will most likely rub bad.

      I have 18x8.5 +36 witha 225/40 falken 512 ( runs narrow like an other tire companys 215/40) and it rubbed a little bit with -2 camber.

      I just bought 18x8 45mm Audi RS3 replicas with 215/45/18 tires but the company just emailed me and said that they only have 35mm offset available. Is this a big deal?

      I'm running ultra lows too. I feel like they can be a little stiffer. Any of you other guys with ultra lows get your frames c notched? I am constantly banging my axle on the frame on the passenger side. And how are you guys dealing with the front camber?

      not notched here but I suspect im starting to rub axle now that the springs are starting to settle down.

      Camber im good with, its not annoying unless im turning hard and hit a bigger bump but you could always get a set of mkv camber plates and run those. I will probably end up getting a set eventually

      would 19 x 8.5 wheel with 35 offset fit properly? or would i rub?

      planning on lowering on neuspeed springs as well.
