hi guy iv recently got my car lowered on pedders springs (apparently) there equivelent to lowered king springs , the back sits nicely but the front is really low i like the look of it though but iv noticed a few times wen u have gone around a tight corner it makes a noise like the tyres are rubbing on sumthing, it also done it when reversing back straight, im thinking that i might need to get my guards rolled, i am just curious as to what u guys think it is, and if so were and how much would it cost to get done

Do you have a pic of how it sits now, just for interests sake?
If its catching the guard you should be able to see marks on either the tyre or the inside lip (will probably be pulled outwards).
However, if the noise happened when reversing straight, I seriously doubt thats your issue OR only issue.
As for the actual rolling, expect about 50bux a corner (give or take), and a panel crasher or tyre joint should be able to do it or point you in the right direction.

mine where very close and dragged a couple of times. I got a spark plug socket, extender bars and a few different blocks of wood and the rolled it out with the socket. Will admit not the most orthadox way to go about it but worked and didn't chip anymore paint

@ 1:10 the jack seems to have bent the metal bit on the car (whatever its called)

And he also put the brick under the front wheel after he jacked it up..

Wow I can't believe these people think they have the expertise and skill to make instructional videos.

Oh, and a Micra? Lol
