You probably could but it wouldn't be any different than raising the ride height.

It fits like this. Sorry, no dismounted photos on my phone

Edit: just kidding, 5 attempts to upload photos and they won't upload off my phone...

My KW V3 coilovers does not have enough threads to lift the collar higher than 315 tires.
Using a sleeve spacer might be another path I can take, but that eats up clearance space

Is your ride height adjustment not a function of the shock body? I haven't looked at KW stuff for the evo so I'm not familiar with it. It sounds like your height adjustment is dependent on the lower spring perch?

Yes but there's not enough threads to move the lower spring perch past .>25" tall tires and gain the clearance space occupied by the springs

Guess I'm in, I was waiting on silver to be in stock anyway.

Was thinking about their tires too, the RSRRs are cheap but they're tall and run wide, so they're more like a 285/35/18. Nah, my liners don't deserve that punishment.

Edit:

Here's a much more expensive but interesting fitment for these arms. A $2,500 increase in cost for 2.5lbs savings per corner. Ehhh, I could do it, but it would be scary parking somewhere with these since I already had my RPF1s stolen in a nice neighborhood once. https://www.rallysportdirect.com/par...5x114-gunmetal

I rub the frame at full lock and there is still rubber on the fender lip from tire rub. Moving to 11" and wider tires means sacrificing max steering angle.

Also, for anyone who isn't aware, Forgestar makes their F14 wheel in just about any width and offset you want and price is on par with other wheels mentioned here: https://www.forgestar.com/wheels/rot...ck-series/f14/
I looked into these since your post, and I'll just leave this here. Seems like a fine company in terms of support, but I'm going to play it safe and stick to what people run on the track.
