    Looking to adjust ride

    I'm looking to adjust the rear ride height to a bit higher. Can anybody point me in the right direction? Reason for asking is I installed oversized wheels and need some more clearance for bumps.

    I bought a set of wheels and tires for it that are a bit large. 225/40R18. I believe the width of the wheel is 7.5" and the offset is 45 .The front is fine. Just a slight rub on the liner. Not enough to worry about. The problem is the back end. On a big dip in the road the car comes down a bit too far and rubs something. Haven't figured out what it is yet but I figured if I had more height or a stiffer set up that would solve my problem. As it sits now the car has more gap between the tire and body at the front than the back. I don't want to lower my car at all as I drive it year round in Alberta.

    Figured out what the rubbing is. The rear tires are rubbing the bumper cover. I'll take a grinder to it this weekend to add some clearance. I'd still like to stiffen it up a bit. I'm thinking air bags or an air shock. I'll look into them more and post if I come up with something.

    Try lower profile tyres or get coil overs just for the rear. Just my thoughts
