Thanks for the compliment! Raising the car is not going to resolve anything. When you lower the car natural camber increases. The range of motion will stay the same. Even with the car being higher, when I hit big bumps, the car will still rub. This is a clearance issue which i believe to be related to the tire choice as mentioned above, or the offsets.

I hope someone can chime in which has been in a similar situation.

For future reference, these offsets are not mildy aggressive as I was told. The fitment is spot on now that everything is dialed in, but it was a long process to get here. I will post up pictures of the final product once I receive my car back from the detailers this Friday.
