I have about the same clearance. I "adjusted" the strut housing with a mallet a couple mm to get a little extra room. No problems so far.


23mm up front isn't really a good idea.Add the 5mm spacer for the times the car WILL safely need the clearance.Fronts should be 13mm/20mm,preferably 13/15mm.No more with a 16x8"
