slick fitment/suspension decision
I have 28 x 10.5-15 hoosier slick mounted on a 15x8 bart steel wheel and I just tried fitting them on and they are just about hitting the outside lip (less than 1/4" clearance). I normally drive on 26 x 10-15 M/T drag radial mounted on a 15x9 pro-star and they have about 1" clearance and they hit the outside lip when going over bumps with a passenger in the car and it tears up the tire. I tried to "roll the fender" with a baseball bat and it did an ok job, but not enough, it still hits. I already set my rear QA1's on stiff and that helped a little.
My question is: do I replace the Eibach drag launch springs with the stockers (and possibly switch the bag to the stockers too?) or try moving the lower control arm mounting hole to the upper hole (I have HPM mega-bite lowers and I thought the lower mounting hole is for better traction (that 's where it's at now))? I may have to be both, but what should I try first? Anyone?
