How much did the sport springs lower your car by?

I have a 96 ls I lowered mine with the eibach pro kit 1.3" and had some bilstien shocks. I was running a 17x7 with a 42 offset, the tires were 215/40/17. I was also rubbing in the back. I had the inside of my fenders rolled and that solved the problem. I was never cutting my tires just rubbing. Now I have 205/40/17's with a 40 off set and I am not having any problems

Yeah your offset isnt in far enough to allow full suspension travel without the frame/fender rubbing on your tire.

-- Solution roll or shave fenders. Another get new wheels with better offsets. Perhaps even try finding a place that can shave the inside in a few mm see if that will give you enough clearance. As well as you could probably shave your brake rotor. Allthough with those studs stick out I dont know what you would have to do. Im sure you can remove those..... This would of course not be easy , but you would get an offset that would help handling im sure.
