Re: Rear Wheel Side Clearance
Just to update anyone else wondering about the answer to my question. I've been talking alot to my local wheel guys and mechanics and they told me that 1.5 inches is plenty. They'd said it would be fine with only 1/2" of clearance.
That being said, I ordered my new rear axle narrowed down to 50 3/8". This will give me somewhere between 1" and 1.5" between both the tire and the framerail and the inner wheel well. This clearance will make it so the first place the tires will touch when droping the rear of the car will be the top of the wheel well. Now I'll just have to figure out how much clearance is needed there.
