    My new Centerline Autodrags are kicking butt on the R/S. Had to do some grinding on the tie rod ends and the strut brackets but they jam. Finally got some traction. I'll try to get some pics. Contrary to popular belief P295/50R15's will fit.

    Z3PR,
    Had to grind a little off of the tie rod ends to make them fit. I thought I measured everything just right. Oh well. I have some traction now with the 295/50/15 tires in the rear. It would just roast the 60's of the rims through first and second gear. Next, a 4 link suspension........

    Get some pics of that bad boy up... what is the backspacing on those rims? I would love to fit 275 or 295's on the back of my chevelle that I have pulled back out. Should be very similar fit wise.
