Well to answer ur questions in order.. Lol
1. Yes h&r race springs will tuck ur tires.. Quite a bit actually.. When I put the springs on I had 17" stock wheels and they were tucking.. Now I have 18" bbs's an it's still tucking.. I'm sure you'll still be tucking with 19" but u might have to roll ur fenders if I go with 19".. IMO 19" is too big for our cars.. Lol Ill see if I have any recent pics of mine..
2. No u can't take the rubber pads off cause that's the only thing holding them in there place.. Trust me I thought about doing that too lol
