    You should be fine with 20mm spacers. Fronts and rear.

    and wouldnt have to buy any other nuts or bolts or anything? i'm taking your word for it :) lol keep in mind my car isnt lowered also, so that woudl probably help the no-rubbing.

    convinced ...time to order the h&r 20mm spacers...haha.

    p.s. if i decide to lower, there wouldnt be any problems stil right (i know u have lowered with spacers and 20's)

    Are you running hubcentric spacers. I posted this in another place, wrong subject sorry about that. I was at the shop getting my wheels/tires put on, and the wheels were obstucted by the caliper. The wheels are a 38 offset, vs our 40 offset, 2mms....gees. I called the shop where I ordered them, but as an option I could put spacers on, but I want hubcentric only, thus my question. Thanks

    Hey I had a shop order spacers for my wheels, but the cost was something like 20 dollars. I don't understand what he could have possibly ordered. I made sure he looked for hubcentric spacers. He called wheel pro and I guy that works there who owns a FX45 told him exactly what I needed after explaining that I needed clearance for my caliper. I told the guy that ordered that the normal cost of spacers are anywhere between 60-100 dollars. I can't speak to him until tomorrow so I can get the name of the person he spoke with, but I can't help but wonder what could he have possibly ordered for so cheap a price.

    They probably ordered you hubcentric rings and not spacers.

    Wheel spacer saga continues......You know I hate lazy customer service...lol. I tell the guy from the so called performance shop that I need hubcentric wheels spacers. I must've said hubcentric 5 times. Now he calls me and says your spacers are in at the cost of $10 dollars per spacer. I get there and its just as suspected, 4 very cheap universal spacers. Now I told this guy exactly what I needed and he goes into this story of well I was just trying to help, and now this is turning into a nightmare. This guy makes one phone call and orders the wrong thing solely based on what some guy with another FX said...lol. Im thinking all this guy has to do is take a few orders from paying customers and do a little research sometimes....hello...its your job. So he alludes that this is a special order, don't know if he can return them. So I say its a cheap universal spacer, what is special order about this. Its like anything, you order it and don't use it, send it back. Then he goes into this I never had anyone not trust what I say...lol. Im doing everthing to keep from telling this guy how I really feel. This is the major problem in this area, want to be performance shops with nobody in the know. Now Im not too upset about this because when he told me the price of the spacers I called the shop where I got my wheels and we worked out a deal for custom wheel spacers for my FX. Thank goodness for this forum.

    This is more a question for both jbaker and fxlr8, do you guys like your setup as far as lowering w/ springs and 20MM spacers? I'm looking to do springs, and potentially wheel spacers as well but the high cost of the H&R's is deterring me. Also, what kind of alignment issues did you have with the setup? I'm looking to get the Eibach front camber kit and having my mechanic do everything at once. Please guide this lost soul...

    Ya i found them and they do look nice in black. But there not too cheap about $450 per wheel for 22's and they look to be on the heavy side.

    you'll be fine there will be no alignment issues. you can even go with 25mm spacers which will look even better... The only thing that mechanics will say is the in the back tyhey can only align it to a certain point because of the lowering and the spacing...but that wont be an issue until you break the springs in...
    You definitely dont need the camber kit for the front, and you barely need it for the back. If you do want to get it, just get it for the back...all it means is that theyll have more room for alignment adjustments


    man those are cheap for 22's they are definitely heavy as sin
