    Check on ebay man. I have an '02 SS with Eibach sportlines and that bitch sits LOW. Too low, in matter of fact. Looks awesome but scrapes quite a bit. Go with the prokit or something else maybe BMR. I have 295's out back w/ 7/16" wheel spacers so they dont rub and 245's up front with 1 1/4" spacers because the tires looked too tucked in w/o them. I found the 1 1/4" spacers off ebay. Hope this helps.

    I have 7/16" spacers 4 the back so the dont rub on the inside of the fenderwell. U could even get 3/8" because mine push the tire farther out on the wheel studs(which they are going 2 do) and only give me 2 - 3 threads left on the stud to screw the lug nut on, which is not very much.

    That is dangerous to have such little stud left.

    You need to replace the studs with the ARP replacement:



    They were about $15 (Canadian) for a package of 5. Cheap insurance as you wheels could literally fall off!
