No, they won't rub. If you do the lowering springs, contact Stage 6 and but their rear adjustable shocks. It will help with the bottoming out that some have experienced.,

Yes, one of the best suspension mods available. It firms up the rear end.

I have them front and back. The rears are the 1.7" drop. Couldn't stop the bottoming out, even with the QA1 shocks set at 8 which is too stiff for roads here. Phoned road magnet and they are sending me the 1.3" drop springs, no charge if I send the old ones back within 30 days. The spring rate is 300# on the 1.7" and 305# on the 1.3". Extra coil makes the difference between the two. The rear sits lower than the front, especially with a full tank of fuel. With the 1.3" will probably look more even front and rear. Also have the sway bar end links.

I run the woodys with QA1's. I only bottom out when I have 2 adults in the back. The bumpstops have been adjusted.

Thumbs up

I have this set-up (road magnet's v-2, 275-315, bwoody's end links) and have had no problems bottoming out, even with two other adults and a hatch full of luggage. small rubbing prob with the right rear tire, though. nothing a quick drumle job didn't fix.

I recommend Eibach springs because they will not sag easily.
