    just got my TTIIs

    i got my TTIIs but dont have tires yet.
    i did a test fit with just the wheel only and it seems to rub on the bumpstop.
    also it is barely clearing the lower control arm, so with tires im sure it will rub on the LCA.
    is this common?
    also, my car leans toward the passenger side for some reason?
    the driver's side seems 2 fingers higher than the other side...
    any help is appreciated
    thanks

    Uneven surface?? Mine appears to sit a little off in my driveway thanks to a funky slope.

    I assume you test fit with no load on the rearend??

    it seems to be leaning some at all times but not as bad as now(maybe the surface?)
    yep, no load on the rearend, just had it jacked up from the side as usual...

    but how about the LCAs?
    should the wheel even be that close to them?
    i really think that with the tire it will rub on them.
    should i grind a little bit of the LCA like the bumpstop?

    I didn't have to touch the LCA's. Little close, but not touching them.
    I will see if I can get a pic of how close later tonight or tomorrow.

    Not the best pics. Not easy getting under that car.

    thanks for the pics
    i think mine are close because i still have the stock LCAs that are not tubular
    if anything, i'll just shave a bit off the lip of the stock lca

    Uneven rear ends are actually fairly common. Spare tire and jack are on the passenger side and I am not sure they are counter weighted on driver side, cause every time I see someone post about uneven rear ends, passenger side is always low, never driver side.

    i was thinking of the same thing because the weight is uneven (no jack/tire on drivers side)

    does anyone think that an adjustable panhard bar would make the car sit even instead of leaning on one side?
