Anybody think I should run a thicker pad or will my C36 align properly?? How many fingers will fit from tire-fender? I'll get the camber kit from K-mac Australia if it doesn't. Opinions? Advice? I'll get my pics soon, I promise!




'96 Silver C36 w/44,000 miles, Clear corners, Fact grill(mesh is Black), flat badge, soon to be dropped.

Well I will say I doubt any lowered car will align properly, its not the cup kit right?? How much does the sport H&R kit drop?? I am running Eibach springs @ 1.8" drop in the front and 1.7" drop in the rear with #1 pads up front and #2 pads in the rear, and up front....there is basically no gap, my summer tires rub on the fenders, kinda have to put my fingers under the fender to go on top of the tire!! depending on how much of a drop the H&R kit gives u, u should be ok with #1 pads up front.

I'm getting the Sport's, not the cup-kit. They are advertised at 1.4 front, 1.3 rear. I should be OK I guess? 1 finger clearance is what I am expecting? I'm rolling on Yokahama AVS ES100's 245/40/17 rear & 235/40/17 front(same size as oem C32 AMG)

Im running the H&R with #1 pads all around. Its about 1 - 1 1/5 fingers up front and half a finger out back. Its strange but we all know finger lowering.

You are running 17" so I think you would end up with some gap bet. your tires and fender. I got 4&3 pads with 1.5 drop h&R. Tomorrow I'll see the difference when I go #2 all around.
I got 18x8 225x40 front and 235x40 rear. Oh! in the event you need a camber kit I got a set brand new ready to ship. Only if I get the $$$ first... :p :D ;) :)

Damn!! I thought the Regular H&R kit dropped it more than that, that would be way too high for me, I like how I'm sittin, no gap up front and almost no gap in the rear, I'm gonna switch to #1 pads in the rear soon I think, maybe closer to the summer season.
