So I got my KYB GR2's and iam putting in lowering springs to drop 1.5 Inch's on my 95 EGT. Iam wondering if anyone has dropped that much and if so am I going to need to roll my rear fenders?? looks like it will be pretty tight. As iam riding on 195/60/15 summer tires but swapping in the winter to the taller 185/60/15. Also is there any other problems I may run into with this project??

I am on Intrax 1.8" lowering springs, GR2 struts, and 17" rims. I have wheels that are properly "plus-sized" and I have zero clearance issues, but I did roll my rear lip for security; hate to cut a tire or gouge a rim. Even fully loaded, the wheel never comes too close.

Ok so I changed my struts I took back the kyb's and I bought the s/r from zxtuner. I ordered the Perch Conversion Kit also is that all I will need to make this work for my 95 egt. Also the Strut rebound bumpers? Do I need to get a set of theyes as they do not come with the struts?

yes the good old great white north I live on the coast so it dose not see to much snow/salt but last winter was a different story!!! The rims (15’s) that are on there I got on craigslist I think they are like a no-name brand. I have a friend with the same set, his are white neither of us know. Great offset, they do need to be re-powder coated but that can get done at my work. The rotors (power slot) are from a Canadian auto part store "lordco" $60 it pays to know the manager! Thank you for your comment she still has a lot to go but this is a good start.

arent the gasses produced from the rotors not properly released when they are on backwards like that? i thought the slots were meant to go one way...
