Hi Guys, Greta forum, been browsing for a while. I have a BA Lane, the rear tyres are scrubbing on inside, to raise this, only need 5mm? do I need new springs/shocks? spacer? not sure with IRS. Thanks.

if they told you it was out of adjustment then surely they told you what would need to happen to fix it :?

It's because falcons IRS set up is better than the s**t trailing arm set up.

Ride: BA MkII XT with XR^ spolier @ 17

Location: Caloundra
QLD, Australia

I have a BA XT MkII and have XR low profile 17" wheels fitted in lieu of the 16". I have a problem with the insides of the rear tyre scrubbing, real bad. But I tow a caravan and i have the front and rear wheels realigned before each trip. From the outside the tyres look OK but the insides are worn almost through.
If I fit 17 full size alloys from a BA Fairmont will this effect the gear or Diff ratio's. I know the speedo will require readjustment

Thanks
