No wheel gap is a tough one for the CB chassis. It kinda stinks.

I never had any issues ever on the cars side. The piss poor roads here and such? Yes. But it was never the cars fault and I never once had a control arm slap or a CV shaft issue.

I think this was due to the R&D on Neuspeed's part. They made it as low as they could without issues. But, that's not low enough for some. Personally I can understand people wanting to go until there is no wheel gap. It looks good.

I have a decent drop running koni yellow with H&R race springs on the second perch. I have maybe 1.5 finger wheel gap. I never experience banging or suspension noise. Ingals camber kit up front, body shims and longer bolts out back for camber correction. My tires are 205-55-R16 so we should be in around the same ball park Raf99, other than your offset and wheel width are different than mine.

I also have energy suspension poly bushings, I think Raf99 does too...

Yep. I would be ok with any of these looks...








But while I have the same tire size with a top of the line suspension setup I have this, with rubbing, problems & issues.




So I give credit to those who are lower. I guess they have really nice roads or their rides are scraping, bumping, junking, and clunking.

sepulveda87 is cool... so far.
what i currently have done to my cb is bought the skunk 2 ef camber arms, that prevents me hitting the inner wheel well. YES i have alot of negative camber but i also married the ingalls anchor camber kit to the skunk 2 arms and im sitting on 16x8 +15 offset wheels, total negative camber is 2. I myself thought about making a .125-.25 spacer for each motor mount to have a lil more clearance. i have 2 1/2 exhaust pipping. yes i do scrap especially in the streets of houston. i have seen a couple of houstonians that have low cb's make a skid plate, doesnt look good imo but there are diff solutions just got to find out what works best for you

I'm happy where I am at, a bit less than one finger. Rear UCA banging? I've never heard that one but I guess it's possible. External bumpstops may alleviate the sound of the banging.

I was expecting this:




On to help you instead of criticize you. You should not have any issues with CV shafts due to their angle. It might need new CV shafts as the current ones might just be old and worn. A camber kit in the front will also give the CV shafts more natural geometry. You could benefit from some stiffer struts though such has Koni yellows. Being that low with soft struts you will bottom out a lot on bumps and such. That will also help out drastically with the front upper control arms hitting the wheel wells.

To be clear which are you using? You said "full body" but I just want to be sure on what you meant.

These? http://www.ebay.com/itm/MEGAN-RACING...14f58f&vxp=mtr


Or These? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Megan-Adjust...5adf95&vxp=mtr

If you are using the EZ coilovers you are likely experiencing them being to soft. For the $700 you could have had Koni yellows and almost had Ground Control adjustable coilover springs which you would have fell in love with. Plus get a very performance oriented suspension set up and the look you want without a lot of the things you don't like.
The ez street series has dampening control I'm riding on 5 clicks which by megan is supposed to be used for "aggressive riding" and for the track.
I would like to upgrade the suspension to something better honestly.
I'm almost positive that it's bottoming out. Cause it's at its lowest adjustments it could possibly be at. I'm going to raise it a little bit so I don't completely ruin the coils before I can get a new set. Thanks for the info on the cvs.
I've been bullshitin on an alignment cause I want to get my suspension half way decent in my eyes so I don't tweak it and have to spend the money all over again for one.

I have 2 and a half piping as well. I hit a hard bump at night that I didn't see on the highway and it broke the welds on bracket from the header to the back of the block
So now it hangs extra low. I fixed the leak that it made but I havnt gotten around to fixing the bracket.
I also have the ingalls camber kit so I'm hoping when I put them on my tire won't rub as much over bumps.

I have absolutely no wheel gap in the front and I'm trying to keep it that way.
I didn't have a problem with the arms slapping until it was tucking.

Honestly it's not too hard. But then again I cut open my shock towers...

Adjustable anchors for camber in the front
Function Form Type 1
800lb 8" Eibach springs in front w/ 1 lock collar only
Rear with original spring and 2 lock collars.

Drives great...

800lbs in front and stock in the rear?

Sounds like it would be comfortable, but still pretty stiff. What size wheels and tires do you have?

800 in the front and 372 in the rear or whatever the original spring is in the rear for those coilovers. 17x9.5 are my specs 205/40

How can it drive great, you have no front suspension travel.

Sounds like a recipe for understeer to me...

'Great' is a usefully vague word. It's probably great until there is a bump, or great until there is a corner. The car however is very pretty, but obviously not for serious use...

I have full suspension travel. It hits the bumpstop before anything. I have the shock towers opened up.

Full travel for you = about .5"

You would have to cut the whole tower out to the base of the uca just to get .5" of clearance. A small hole does nothing.

To have any real amount of travel at your front height, the upper arm would go through the hood.
