I have a few question regarding the spacers......i just brought ichiba spacers 15mm for the front and 20mm for the rear, my questions are.....

1. How hard is it to install the rear?
2. What are the torq specifications?
3. Do i have to get an alignment after installing them?
4. As for the rotor do you have to mark it or something to get it back on the xact way or does it matter?

Thank you.........I am a little skeptical on doing the install myself...i dont want to [email protected]#k anything up..............i would greatly appreciate any help or tips on the install.

1. Considering you live in CA and i cant imagine your car having as much rust as me it should be pretty easy.

2. not sure on the brakes but wheels should be done between 90-100 ish.

3. No

4. No.

Ok, so i have little experience here and could use some help. Im going to be installing the TRD lowering springs (1-1.5" drop) and I have Konig Incident rims that, after some research, I find have an offset of 45. I want to extend the wheels out and I think my only option is a spacer. So, my question is, what size spacer would you recommend?

I have a tC.

20 or 25mm bolt on spacers, however you need to go lower to make it look good.

Im also having a widebody kit installed in the next couple of weeks (maybe i should have mentioned that), so i think that will help give it the 'lower' look. So, if I go with a 20mm (to be safe) I should have no problems? Could you give a quick explanation of how the offset works just so i dont feel so dumb.


Oh, and i just looked at your car (super clean ride btw ). What was the color red you used with your calipers? I called TRD and they had no clue! Morons!

If you're goin wide body you need new wheels no spacer would makethose wheels look goon with a wide body plus they won't be safe
