NickCawks Posted June 15, 2018 Share Posted June 15, 2018 I recently purchased some new wheels for my legacy, being the cheapo I am I found them on Craigslist. What I was able to locate was a set of tenzo R Type M's with brand-new Kumho ecstas is on them for $500. The only problem is they are 245/40-18x8 Now, when I test fit these during the purchase they seemed totally fine and would be no issue. However, once the transaction was over and I put the new wheels on my car I realize that while the rear right is totally fine the rear left is about an 3 / 4 in lower, causing it to rub the rear quarter panel on bumps and turns. My first assumption was the shock was blown so I replaced both shocks in the rear, this did not fix the problem. So then I think well the rear spring must be sagging so I replaced both rear springs which netted me the exact same result. My mechanic says this is common driver side sag and the only way to fix it is by replacing suspension on all four corners. I'm curious if you guys would agree with this. I have looked into the prospect of using spacers, Springs from a wagon, suspension setup from a spec B. The issue is as I mentioned before I'm a cheapo and I do not have the money to just throw at this and hope that it fixes the problem. I'm hoping to get some of your guys thoughts on the proper way to fix this, the cheap way to fix this, or the middle ground. Thank you guys in advance and let me know if there's any more information I can give you Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
