wheel hits my rear fender/quarter panel any help?

i installed my 295/35/18 equipped black bullits in the rear and they hit my rear quarter panel, im lowered with the eibach prokit, are there any isolators i can buy to lift the rear of my car like .5 inch?

i think just stacking up the other bottom isolators should raise my back end up a good bit. lets see what josh od stang suspension says (i sent him an email)

you've been having a rough time with stuff lately... the truck, this, lol. Kinda makes me happy I'm not lowered (yet). Maybe I don't want to lower it that much... maybe just 1/2"... the lowering can wait until some engine stuff is done

I feel your pain... I was going to get rims this summer, then got SMACKED with a $2500 loan... and a rear end that went out, and a broken EVAP tube... and a busted rear bumper, and messed up exhaust... it's been a tough summer.. hopefully nothing else goes wrong.

its what i have set-up. h&r SS springs w/ poly isolators. stiffens everything up and also gives it a nice gap so the rear doesnt rub. i only have a 9" on there but a 1" wheel spacer to make it flush w/ the fender.

urathene isolators are supposed to help, you can do those or spring spacers. If the rear is alot higher.. the front will look stupid droped hard core with the rear only an inch or 1.5 inches... so keep that in mind.

You had to go and put on big *** tires and rims because they look cool. Well Show style cars typically dont make good street driveable cars. But never mind you wanted it you got it!!!!

the problem is pretty much solved, the urathane isolators took care of it. i just want the rear higher now because of how dope it looks, when i put the isolators the rear rised up and i thought it would look meaner with the rear a litle higher. but the rubbing issues are gone with the isolators. and damn corey ho many times have you edited the title.
