    Do i have to swap any thing else to go with the arms , have been told i can use wheel spacers to help fill the arches, that way i can run with my own wheels ,

    technically you would also need the track rod ends but have generally foud that there is enough leeway to correct the alignment with no issue......

    wheels would then sit further out with no need for spacers

    When you looking to do this? I'm going to be looking for a front wing for mine soon. Would buy 1 of yours if you go to Sti wings.
