    Fender flare question

    Ok i have looked everywhere on the internet but could not find an answer... I see lots of fender flares on old cars and i really need them on mine. Yes i need lol

    I dont have the time and i really dont feel like cutting my rear wells out on this body i have put a lot of effort into. Any other solutions/ ideas to get my wheels to clear. Lower profile? I cant go any smaller then 14's do to a brake swap

    Austin and Dallas have a ton of chassis/performance shops. Ask around and find a place to narrow your RX7 rearend. I think in the end you'll be happier that way. It may cost you a bit of money, but the alternative is to just start over with an toyota truck or Ford 8.8 and narrow that instead. I know you want to keep the LSD in yours now. I'm not sure what the TE31 rear measures out too. Try and find a stock TE31 rearend and post up the measurements from Mounting flange to Flange.

    For domestics, in the neighborhood of $300-500. Never done it on an import...
