its just riding real low in the back because of the extra weight, but the offset seems like it is a little high.

yeah your solution is either raise the car, stiffen the springs, or get rims with less offset. if they still rub, your car is too low, and make the springs stiffer so it dont hit.

role your fenders and that will fix the problem neg camber was better because it angeled you tier in at the top which helped prevent scraping. so getting the lip roled on your fenders will give you the clearance that you need. i had to do the same thing.

alright i guess the rims are offset, i'll work on the suspensions again try to raise it up or if still does i would have to return the stock springs on the rear
