    I flipped my quads this weekend so when my wheels get here next week I can just toss them on and go.Now my quads are hitting my shocks on bigger bumps.Anyone have this problem?

    Re: quads question 2

    Well, since there is no answer on that one.Do the quads even need to be flipped? :dunno:

    I know when I got my DD and 315's the driver side would rub on hard decel.. and during right turns.. I ditched them once I got u/l control arms though.. If I didn't get the control arms, I would have flipped them..

    I've heard the quads usually need to be flipped when putting a 315 out back.

    we just bought a car with 315's on it and on the lift we noticed what we think you guys are calling a quad (the shock looking thing running more parallel to the ground) rubs the tire when it's on the lift.

    we can't tell if it does that on the ground or not, it's so hard to see. what way should the quad be from the factory so we know if it has been "flipped" or not? I assume this means reverse the direction it is going so the skinny side is nearest the tire? (most clearance)?

    thanks for another answer to our many naive questions.

    yes, skinny side should be nearest the tire once you flip the quad shock..

    I had to flip mine when I put the 315's on too, the cover just kisses the shock cover but no harm or problem.
