In your other thread you mentioned dropping it. You could run into problems cutting tires on the fender. I had 1 1/2 inch spacers and a 2" drop and cut mine on inclines and dips in the road. I sold the spacers and didn't have a problem after that. But now I'm running a wider wheel and it looks like it would be close if i hit a dip at speed. If your wheels are 8" you should be ok with a 3/4 or 1" spacer with it lowered. I'd be more inclined to say if your set on getting spacers then pic up the 3/4".

On a 9" wheel I wouldn't do any more than 1/4. That's just me.

Think im going to wait on the drop and just got the wheels so no buying wider ones plus the rear have brand new tires so I believe I will just go with the 25mm/1'' spacer in the back for now then maybe down the road try other options

If anything save the money don't buy the spacers. Just save enough and get the drop seriously makes ure car look 100x better.

Yah opt for the drop...second best appearance mod after wheels.

IMO a dropped car with tucked in rear wheels looks better than a spaced rear at 4x4 height.
