    I have about that much gap too....I would like to SLAM it BUT fender rolling will be needed.

    If slammed fender roll/slight pull recommended with fender liner modification/removal as well for the fronts.

    Got mine installed over the weekend and went with 255/35/20 tires. I can't really tell a difference in ride quality but can definitely tell a difference in road noise. Kind of wish I had gone with the 245/40/20 tires now...

    You should feel the car picks up a bit faster. The 40 height gives a bit more cushion. 255/35/20 is a good tire size for our cars but you need a mild drop to finish it up

    I notice the acceleration is faster and my MPGs are better a bit (it keeps fluctuating at a red light weird I know but it is not bad).
    No noise at all. I am happy about that.

    Maybe not SLAMMED but man tucked. I see i will have to remove the lining I guess. Is this something you could do?

    Yeah, 255/35/20 isn't too bad, but it does leave a gap. I would love to drop it a little but I worry how it will affect my 10yr/100,000 mile warranty. On top of that, I'm having trouble finding any springs that will do a minimal drop. It looks like ARK GT-F's might do the job, but their website says there is no drop when those are used on a 3.8L RWD.
