lift 2003 grand marquis to fit 24's
Posted 26 June 2011 - 11:34 PM
The rims are 24" U2 35 rims that where on a dodge magnum.
How can i get these rims to fit? will having the wrong offset hurt anything or mess something up?
Should i just put knuckles in the front and raise the air ride all the way up in the back?

"Ain't nuthing like swerving in front of a nigga then stop... back rims spinning forward while the front spin backwards and the trunk whamming..... #i'm sorry but a forgi can't do that

How hard is it to install cups by the way.

As you can see, its def not 3 inches, measured from the ground to the fender, id say its more like 1 1/2" to almost 2",
(2) fat knuckles per side is perfect IMO, matter of fact when I had one per side I was good, but I was worried about fenders drops and I was on the Hwy alot so went with 2 for peace of mind.
Cups are easy on the CV/Mercs, but if your looking to lift that front, the only option is the kit UCL sells its a little different than the cup lift.

what page is yours on its alot of car in that thread...lol...u still have the rims on? are they 24's? and did having the wrong offset mess up anything in your suspension?
I put 2 knuckles in their today (which is an easy job by the way) and now I hear like a little squeek like noise...sounds more like metal on metal rubbing.
Did that happen to anyone else?
