it will fit but will not be as wide...your wheels will be sunken in over an inch more on both sides. i'd pass and look for one out of a 99-04

or get wheel spacers. even then though, I've heard they aren't good for the car? Can anyone tell me why?

I've had 1" spacers on mine on for a year and a half with no problems.

I've heard from some people that they are bad, any things that they can cause?

I hear the same from people. But most of them have never even tried them. Just make sure to get some hubcentric ones. Don't buy cheap for these. I got mine off of AM. Basically you don't wanna be driving on the highway and your wheel falls off lol

Honestly you won't need an 8.8 unless you're putting out a lot more power. If you're planning Fi or something along those lines I wouldn't worry about it. As for wheel spacers, don't go cheap, get hub centric ones

Why not an 8.8 on stock power ? Heck my friend runs .3 faster on average then me at the track and the only difference is he can spin both lol. No need to upgrade a 7.5 when a decent 8.8 is not much more

No doubt the 8.8 is much better and stronger but if you're planning on just bolt ons, I don't think there is a need for an 8.8

the only thing that would make it better is if it was cheaper.
