You'll want the guards rolled, or the tyres will do it for you.

I'm going to have to find out if WA Suspension Centre can roll the guards for me then.
Otherwise they'll know someone who can.

Cheers guys.

Just on another note if the outer diameter of the tyre is the same is it just the width that is causing the problems?

Haven't had a problem with the 17" and the superlows. The front is sitting about 10-15mm higher than the rear at the moment which is probably why.

When I get the height sorted I may have to roll the guards.

Your springs should settle a bit over the next few weeks probably. What width are your 17s timmeh? I am guessing probably 8 inch. Does that setup s**t all over the factory tickford suspension? I am waiting on a quote for a similar setup for my XR8.

I have got prices on rolling the guards with the proper tool. Was just over $80 per guard. I have booked in for my suspension the week after easter so I will get the front guards done sometime in the next few weeks.
