well, right now i have the new stock KYB shocks on there, so new firmer shocks might be what i need. When i have a passenger, its even worse. what shocks would you reccomend and where can i get them? I found out last night that my rear end is not even. it sits 1/2" to the right, which is the side it rubs slightly on. Here is the main question- if i run a 17x8" wheel and 255/40/17 tires i know ill bring it inside the wheel well and not have anything to worry about rubbing anymore, but if i run 17x9.5s they will be just as wide as my tires now, the only difference is that the 17" wheels will be an 1.5" shorter. Right now my tires are 1" from the wheelwell, and the new tires and wheels would be 2.5" from the wheelwell, do you think that that extra 1.5" will be enuf that it wont compress all the way down on bumps?? Let me know what ya think......17x9.5" and take the chance or go with the 8" wheels??
