    Could do with a bit of 'negative' camber myself - trousers keep wearing-out in the crotch region (and no, its nothing to do with my 9" Ford nodular third member)

    Would dialing-in negative camber help the 'rubbing' situation?

    The wheels rub and no that's not a build flaw.when I built the first part of this,8 odd years back,it had stock steel wings.

    Fast forward to when it came back,the owner had changed to fibreglass wings.the only problem is they are narrower than stock.

    The car is 50mm narrower now than a standard car,if it wasn't the wheels would be ok.i think he may now repair the steel wings and put them on.thsts the only solution

    It looks the mutt's nuts! One question, how do the front wheels turn and not catch on the wheelarches? I've only had a few lowered trucks in on Camaro clips and though they looked great, any time we had to manouevre the tyres rubbed badly, and in one case we actually had to put a 1" lift under the coils as the tyres were desperately trying to rip the feckin wing right off. I can't post pictures any more or I would show them here. An awful lot of the lowered trucks I see have a stupid looking very narrow front track so the wheels can turn, but that pop looks just perfect to me for track and overall wheel position within the arch.
