Not sure. I knocked off the little alignment nub on the stock strut hats and then maxed it out as far as the tower would let me. It's not that much, but it's noticeable.

After looking at this thread, I bought some spacers. I assumed I'd post up a picture once I got them on, but I guess I forgot. 20mm Eibach rear spacers with helicoiled threads so I can torque over 70 ft/lbs (weak aluminum), 12.5mm ECS Tuning front spacers with extended bolts. Tires are (245/40/17) rear, (225/45/17) front.

In the spring I'll be installing coilovers, thinking about getting summer tires with slightly lower profile tires.. any opinions on profile? (I'm keeping 245 in rear, function>form)

So it seems like the magic number for spacers on M68 wheels is 20mm rear and 15mm front on OEM sport suspension?

Anyone with this setup car to chime in? Any issues with rubbing over bumps or passengers in the rear?

My Efforts, they need a little touching up, but don't think i'll be changing them. They just work so well with the silver. I may go a little lower in future.

Great thread, guys. Just what I was looking for. I'm trying to decide what size spacers to use with my m68's at stock height (non-sport.) I'm thinking I'll do what Mango did with 15 in the rear and 12.5 up front. ECS Tuning seems to have a decent deal for HR spacers. Any suggestions? Thanks
