if so, scrubbage with peeps in the back and when you go fast over humps in the road. i don't mean speed humps but slight imperfections.

I have got 17s with a 60mm drop. I have had to have the arches rolled, but cant have anyone in the back. One of my friends also went with 60mm but kept the standard shocks but doesnt sit as low. The trouble with standard shocks is that it will eventually weaken them.

et45 205 tyres.

you need to use longer bumpstops in the rear shocks, limits the suspention travel too whatever you set them as, ie so as too not touch the inner arch which is where they will rub after you remove the arch bolts.
