Coilover touching front upright arm?

Recommended Posts

Hey I’m installing some extreme coilovers in my 96 r33 gtst and the bottom of the front coilovers seem to slightly touch the upper arm?

I’m guessing it’s not supposed to be like that but what can I do to fix it? Can I just put another washer on the arm side of the bushing as well as the bolt side? 

cheers for any help

Usually the lower mount has a thicker/wider side, see image of the right side of the lower shock mount.


Don't see why a couple of washers wouldn't do the same job.

Yeah just space it out if you need to, those shock bodies are way bigger than standard. The shock only acts as a shock on r series chassis so its exact location is not important
