Re: HELP, Need Input!
I run 30" BFG's on stock rims, and it rubs slightly against the frame. I'm running 1/4" wheel spacers on the front to help prevent that, but depending on the backspacing of your rims, this may not apply.
You have 2 cheap bets. 1 is the coil spacers. Rocky Road sells them, or people like to use ones for a Jeep TJ (Daystar).... they're common, but you have to enlarge the centre hole to make them fit. Too much work for me. The cost savings didn't justify it.
The there is the path I took. Adding spacers doesn't sit well with me, so I put in the coils from a 1998 Sidekick Sport 1.8 (OEM Lift, baby!). Being the heaviest of the Sidekick family, and my 2 door ragtop being nice and light, it gave me a hair over an inch, and it rides way better. I paid $160 CDN @ a local wrecker. Hawk Strictly Suzuki quoted me $100 US + shipping.
For the same price as spacers, you can get a set of factory coils that ride well, are already settled/broken in , and, in my opinion, are safer.
