    Problem with Baer GT+ rotors contacting lower A-arms

    I have a 2002 WS6 T/A, I put a Baer GT+ 13 inch rotors in the front and have a problem with the rotors contacting the lower A-arms when the car is on the ground. I even bought new lower and upper A-arms from Spohn Performance to get clearance on the lower. Anyone else have this problem? And if so, what did you do about it?

    Yup! I just posted about this in another thread. On top of the fact that the calipers DID NOT fit with my 17" TTII's as they stated (had to grind off leading edge of caliper fins) the front nose of the lower control arm hit the backside rotor braking surface.

    On the stock control arms the problem (at least on my T/A) was the sloppy, huge weld that runs around the front nose of the lower control arm. I simply ground that weld smooth and flush around the nose and that gained me about 1/8" clearance - been running that way for 2 years now with no problems.
