Default 07 precedent need 1-2"

Ok so after I put 215 40 12 tires on with new rims they jusssssst rub. Even though I was told they wouldn't. Iv done some searching but can find anything on getting a inch or 2 out of the precedent without lifting it? Will HD springs lift it at all? any ideas??

Thanks guys!

WHERE ARE TIRES RUBBING NOW? HD springs might help ( IF ) your stock springs are getting weak? Is cart is leaning to drivers side now ( which is normal ) as carts springs give toward most common load ( DRIVER ). I dont like HD multi leaf springs as often ride becomes very stiff. I like getting leafs of same width, same thickness, and 2" shorter ( NO BUSHING lOOP ENDS ) on each end from spring shop or large auto supply stores and install them under each stock spring. This can often be done without needing longer "U" bolts.

Hd springs will fix it - but you will also need to deal with where the electronics protrude to wheel well - see the cart envy thread for details

What about swapping out for a smaller tire (if you haven't riden these yet). Maybe a 215-35/12 or a 205-30? What kind of wheels did you get?

that is exactly where they are rubbing on the pass. side. Where did you move the wires to? I looked at your thread and it looks awesome. As for the HD springs and the ride that come with them, I could care less about the way it rides. Just want it to look good.

I have not yet wired it, but if you look under the the cart on the passenger side, you will see a plastic tunnel that should allow you to relocate wiring up toward the dash, closer to the gas pedal. Of course, this is much easier to see when you open up the access panel to the brake/ gas pedal.

OT, I looked today and it seems it will be pretty easy to do. Glad I looked at your thread cus I was just gonna start grinding it away... I hope the HD springs help. Only need an inch really.
