    All I want is to clear 33" tires, and have it sit level.
    You should sniff our some of these wheels (barring finding a set of those sweet alcoas that the level 2 came with...)



    I wish they had a wheel that style for the F150. I really dislike the 5 spoke FX4 F150 wheels that I have.

    Yeah, the FX4 wheels of that vintage are oogly.

    I like the ones you posted though! They would look good with darker centers and silver edges on the spokes if that makes sense.

    I'll be picking these up on Saturday. 18" Mustang wheels. I'll need .5 - 1" spacers, but those are cheap for this bolt pattern. The tires are actually a quarter inch larger diameter than what are on the truck now. And the truck actually weighs about 400-600lbs less than the 2012 Mustang they came off, lol.

    Mustang take-offs are cheaper than a new set of tires, which is nice.

    So no Style 5's? I think the Mustangs are a good choice.

    I went from style 5s to Porsche Twists to these, because lazy, lol. Want to buy some style 5s for the M3?

    Finally! 32mm spacers put them at 12mm now, 2mm less than stock.



    Turned the steering wheel a bit when the engine wasn't running while doing a tape measure alignment and this was left on the shop floor. I degreased and pressure washed the rack and fittings, so I can see exactly where it's leaking, but I'll probably just replace the rack, tie rods, and pump. I can get remanned​parts for around $200 so I think I'll just do it and get it over with.

    My p/s return line was leaking pretty bad when I got mine, it was a super easy swap.

    What's not so easy is getting all the air out of they system after. First time I went around a corner the wheels shook all over the place and I almost shit myself.

    The full suspension kit with poly leaf spring bushings was about $780 shipped, the wheels with tires(@9/32) were $500 on CL, and the spacers were $85 with Prime shipping on Amazon.

    I'll be inspecting it in a bit to see exactly where it's leaking. My pump is grinding pretty good so that will most definitely need replacing. The p.o. put power steering fluid in it instead of the Mercon ATF it requires shortening its life. If you turn the wheel without the engine running, you get the crazy shudder. They say you're supposed to run it with the front jacked up and turn the wheel from lock to lock until it's bled. I just swerved back and forth across the back road by my shop and did a few full-lock figure eights.
