Your offset looks worse than mine!
Are you using anything to increase the spring rate? I had to use two rubber donuts in the rear, one in front to keep the wheels away from hitting.

Here's my 96 Metro. So far unmolested. I have some 16" rims I am putting on in the next week or so then starting on the engine. Gonna keep it simple. I already have cam for it. While changing that I am going to put a single underdrive pulley on it (currently has the double pulley) with a +10* cam gear. Then for the exhaust I am going to get a 3-1 header to 2" piping back to where the resonator is but it will be replaced with Cherry Bomb (part#87507) 2" in/out 22.5" long glasspack with a (part#87522) 2.5" in/out 12" long glasspack with the chrome tip (part#577589) for the muffler. Once all that is done I will replace the shocks and put in some lowering springs. Maybe swap out the stock seats for some nice GT ones if I find some nice ones locally. Nice and simple without overdoing it............. I think anyways. 8)

Just added some 16" ADR Design Rims with 195/40/16 Toyo T1-R tires. Need 3 new tires but that will come soon enough. Trying to firgure out if i want the size on there at 2.801% too fast, 195/45/16 at .616% too slow! or 205/40/16 at 1.389% too fast. The 205/40/16 are the cheapest and most available but I am concerned about the rubbing on the back and the front at full lock (the 195's do not do either of those), the 195/45/16 is the closes to stock, but the 195/40/16's that are on there I only need to buy 3 as one tire is brand new.

:lol: Yes sir I certainly do! Gotta get my hands on some H&R's and some new KYB's or Monroe Sensi Trac shocks. I have a line on some used H&R's but the guy hasn't returned my last PM from 2 months ago. Have to get my exhaust done first though as the muffler has a big hole in it and I want to get those few engine bolt ons in.

This is a picture of my 01 Swift, I took the passenger seat out again. I'm going to paint the "interior" soon too. The other picture is the rims on CookieMnstr's Sedan.

I just finished putting H&R springs on my '95 Swift, along with Sensatrucks up front, and Gabriels in the back. The handling is still biased a bit toward understeer (I removed both sway bars, as well), but body roll is much better controlled. The ride, however, sucks. I can deal with it, but most people would probably hate it for a DD. The rear end, especially, crashes hard over frost heaves and pot holes. Overall, I am pleased, as it is a lot more fun on smooth roads, and it will be a lot more fun for weekend auto crosses.
