Rode fine then again no bottoming but I think you are right these things will settle.

I need to get under the front and see if I can release any binding of bushings up there. Front does not appear to have settled at all. Outside of putting on some DP's (which I NEVER want to do again) have not been under there this spring yet for any susp related stuff.

edit: I forgot, I did put the spacers on, 12/15mm F/R and that has me looking hard again at the gaps all around.
Without anything in the trunk e.g. no spare, nothing but a gym bag, the car is about 13" from top of wheelwell to center of wheel in the rear and 13.5" in the front, with about 1/2" and 1" gap, respectively. I'm reviewing this b/c I drive up north to ski almost every wknd, so should have taken that into consideration...

Let me know how the spacers work out. Thx.
