Yea I took off the fronts and it was fine... A slight wobble in the back but not that noticable. Going to take them all off go for balance and then see what happens.

I have Rouge Engineering and they have worked perfect whenever I put my DPEs on. I did however had a set of spacer I got from a local shop here and my rear wheels doing the harlem shake. A buddy was following me and thought my wheels weren't tight and were about to come off. LOL

Thanks! I'm pretty freakin happy with it! I just bit the bullet and bought the performance diffuser from Classic... A little bit of trimming required, but well worth it so far. I'll get it in the air tomorrow and really inspect it, but it looks like a winner!
