Eibach Track Widening Wheel Spacers
SO, to compliment my Eibach Pro Kit, I ordered some Eibach Track Widening Wheel Spacers for the rear of my Stang...
They are more like adapters really. They fit flush against the hub, bolt on to the factory studs, and have new studs to mount the wheel onto. It's my first experience with these. I chose the 30mm, so it pushed the wheels out right at 1.25" on each side at the rear. (Part # 90.4.30.020.3) The quality is really nice, they have Eibach stamped on them...lightweight aluminum, strength tested, hub-centric for a perfect fit and wheel balance.
I jacked up my girl in the garage tonight and installed these. Of course, I torqued all nuts properly. The look is SO MUCH BETTER...no more tucked goofy looking factory rears! It looks like a sweet stagger-fit setup now. LOVE IT. It's dark outside, so I'll snap a pic or two for you guys tomorrow.
Funny thing, and some of you with experience in suspension might be able to tell me why...but even though the spacers are exactly the same thickness, fit 100% flush with the hub and the back of each wheel, the driver side is slightly further out than the passenger side. I notice it, because I'm a picky SOB, but it's not much. Could the rear axle be in some kind of weird off-center stance from the factory? I probably didn't notice it before with the factory tuck. I measured the spacers and they are to the penny, exact same width, and everything is flush, tight, and torqued. I drove it up the road and the ride is smooth as can be, handling seemed nice in the hard curves too.
Wonder, should I get it re-aligned? I don't think pushing the wheels out 1.25" on each side would affect the geometry would it?
