From lurking around this forum for months, I've heard that the front struts being too low is a common issue with the cxracing coilovers, but I also think that having 18s instead of stock 17s is making your problem worse, and possibly also the size of your tires.

There is a way to increase the height a little using the parts from the stock struts, and I've heard this trick can add about 1/2 inch or so.

I used the top metal brace (washer thingy) for the stock suspension, reversed it and placed it on top of the strut.

Been riding now since i installed them. I don't rub and i love them. Looks great. Rides great. These were a great purchase.

If you really wanna keep these coilovers and raise it an inch or more, look into getting front strut spacers. They're made of polyurethane and you can get them for $30+ from amazon. Although most people use it to raise SUVs and trucks, I don't see why it won't work on a car.

Good luck solving this issue, cause I'm tryna get CXracing coilvers too lol
