So I was just thinking of something today. Do your 35's rub on the front inner fenders at all on big hits/landings? I just remember you saying anything about it. Because mine rubbed pretty good even having a bodylift,and after I took it out I had to remove most of the inner fender up to where the fender mounts.

I will have to get some pics for you, i can only see a tiny rub mark up top but i also probably have it bumped an inch or so sooner than the rest of you because my shock bodies are longer

14" is perfect for an f-31, just angle it forward slightly.
