Hello all
I Have a 98 sport 2wd that I put SJM brand 2 inch drop lower control arms in, my problem is that the rims hit the control arms.I have factory 15 inch rims. The "techs" at SJM are no help amazingly, two phone calls to them and they cant tell me what rims would fit. Only that some factory rims don't work , which ones? the ones you have.
So does anyone have these control arms and what size rims are you running? Width? offset? I don't understand offset that much.
I need to replace these rims asap and don't want to buy the wrong ones.
the SJM tech said it wasn't worth it to replace the rims. Right, the kit is already in, the installation instructions says will not work with factory rims but tech says some rims with no data to back it up
Thanks for the help in advance

Sjm control arms

I previously ran a 2" drop SJM lower on my front end with 17" RT wheels. The clearance was never an issue , the ride was too rough. I do not recommend spring cut, or control arm drop for lowering. Spindle is the only way. Great set of SJM lowers for sale, great shape.
