Just a sugestion. At an inch you need an adapter not a spacer. Spacer goes between the wheel and the rotor and is tightened with the existing or longer lugs. At an inch, it is recomended that you get an adapter. Adapter is tightened onto your rotor with the existing lugs and then the wheel is tightened onto the adapter with lug nuts.

thats before the spacers.... with spacers the rear tire sits perfectly flush with the quarter panel.... looks great all i need now is to lower the front....
cant find any lowering springs so i think ill have to cut off a coil and see how that looks....
dont want it to sit too low but i need the front lower!!
