ironically, i misread this at first.
i'm not so "hellaflush", but i'll definitely chime in with the gen5-specifics.
is a current picture of the car a prerequisite? lol.
paraphrased from what i said in "wheel, tire, and offset" thread:
wheel: 18x9.5+35 all around
effective offset: +35 front, +30 rear via 5mm spacer
tires: 225/45R18 goodyear eagles a/s all around
suspension: BC coilovers
front camber: -1.6 degrees via upper camber plates set to halfway
rear camber: -2.9 degrees via rear eibach/spc camber bolts; ~bolt pointed 30 degrees from max negative
other: shocks set to 2 from softest setting. rare strut rubbing in rear if i don't use 5mm spacers.
fender-work: cut & shaved fenders and tabs automatically pushed away from tires. haha.
different brands of tires respond to stretch differently (i.e. some tires stretch with a concave curve on sidewall, while others do the "bubble-stretch", so i thought brand/model was worth mentioning.
a lot of trial and error with alignment, and one strut-rubbing incident in the rear.
i think if i were going to "hellaflush" the cam, i'd drop the front .75 to 1 inch, keep the cambers (actually, front camber might slightly camber in more with drop), space out the rears with the 15mm ichibasII that i have (it would evenly poke out ~5mm all around), and set the shocks to a semi-bone-jarring setting to prevent some of the rubbing, but not all. maybe for a show, photoshoot, or something, but for now, i'm really happy with the "stance" and it's not a pain-in-the-butt to drive. paul is right. it takes commitment, and i'm saving that for after i move and get a decent job to pay for the tire-shredding (lol jk).
surprisingly, rears aren't showing excessive inner-tire wear with the -2.9. toe was set to right smack in the middle of factory specs to minimize rear inner-tire wear. i guess all those people claiming toe as a greater factor on tire wear were right! in fact, when i had the rears at -2.0, the outside was wearing a tad more than inside for some strange reason. it was somewhat necessary to bump towards negative on the rears. lol. i'm suspecting weird geometry due to overlowering (face it, anything beyond 2" of drop on a gen5 is overlowering). fronts are fine, since factory camber specs max out of -1.5 degrees- i'm just a hair off.
yeah. i tend to ramble.
