Hello everyone...New to the site, and a newbie WS6 owner. Here's the question... I have a 1999 ws6 with eibach pro lowering kit installed. I have just installed kyb-agx 8-way adj. shocks. I have 275/40-18 on rear with C5 rims, with aprox. 1 inch spacers. I am still having tire rubbing issues. The springs are just to soft. Please recommend a replacement spring for the rear that will stiffen, keep it lowered, but not cause internal injuries.... Thanks for the responses and the awesome forum site. Jeff (fastdaddy).

Is it rubbing all the time or just when you go over bumps?

Only when I go over a good bump. A good dip in the road with 2 people inside will bump for sure.

From what I learned about suspension at my school I would say that a little bit taller springs would be the best answer ( but I could be wrong about that)
shocks just limit oscillation but then again I suppose you could get a real stiff shock so the car will barley move but that will prob make for an uncomfortable ride to, Springs control ride hight. Not sure what kinda shock to go for though sorry.

Go to the general help section they have a suspension and handling forum you could probably find a surefire answer there.

the 275/40-18 tire is 1" taller than stock. this brought you closer to the fenderwells. going to a 285/35-18 will bring you back to stock height of 25.7" tall. you can put coil spring spacers inbetween the coils to limit the amount of compression.

Thanks for all the inputs so far. Actually that is one of the things that I considered is tire height. Thanks...May have to look at tire width also. BUT above all I am definitely excitied about owning a WS6...This is a awesome car by far, and I will be doing some mods very soon, so I will be posting and reading.
