I put larger wheels and tires on my metro convertible and now sometimes if there is too much weight in the trunk the rear tires will rub in a sharp corner or on a bad bump in the road. The rubbing is on a soft spot inside the fender so I'm not worried about cutting the tire but I don't want them rubbing on the body.

I've already put in spring spacers but the rear springs are weak and sagging. It's time to replace them. So what I need to know is, is there a taller and stiffer rear coil that will fit in the 91 Metro convertible automatic transmission? I'll just get a new alignment after I get new springs.

Use 95+ Swift/Metro 3 dr hatch springs . They will lift your ride by an inch or so and make it look like 4WD but it wont rub

Thank you very much! I'll start looking for the springs right away. Are they an exact fit?

Yes . Im using 89-94 springs in my 95+ 3 dr to lower it about 1 1/4" . 95+ springs will do exact opposite in 89-94

I used front springs off a 99 kia sportage on the back of my swift to keep it up where it belongs. I cut about 2 coils off if i remember right. Now it sits about the same height as with h&r springs, but it doesn't bottom out with a load in the car(or while racing which was my problem).
