Wheel spacing
Alright. I need some opinions on what exactly to get for spacers. I know that the right offset rims would be the correct choice but it's too late for that now. Anyway the offset on the rims is 42. the rear is worse thatn the front. I think it's just b/c of the negative camber. I was thinking about the adapters in the celica store and then some spacers for the front...not sure what size though. What does every one think???

Well supposedly they did do an alignment when they installed the springs but I can't be absoulutly sure b/c I droped it off and picked it up when it was done.

Sometimes springs settle after being driven for a little bit. You should've gotten your alignment done a week or two AFTER the spring install.

^ yeah, you're suppose to get an alignment two weeks after the springs are installed. They screwed you rofl

If it really bothers you, you can always sell the wheels & get wider wheels.

I was looking at the H&R spacers. I think I will get those. Selling the rims would be the best way to go but I JUST got them and don't feel like taking/giving a price cut just for having them for 1 month.

They're gonna add more stress to your suspension, so you're gonna have to take it easy wink grin

this may sound like a really dumb question - but did they replace your whole suspension or just the suspension in the front? The picture in your sig looks really strange - it doesn't even look like 18" wheels confused

Well they gave me all 4 of my old springs back. If you look at my sig you can see that the gap is the same in the front and back. Eibach pro springs. These are the old ones right...
