14's will work...just dont run a lil amount of coil..otherwise when the car is dump the fitting is gonna be close to the rear speaker

bust a guys balls why dont ya lol.... ive seen caddy coils in the rear of other cars with less batteries in the trunk and it works....just not in caddys...we stuck 18's in the back of a caddy with some coil and those worked out nicely...just had to remove the rear speakers..but relocated the speakers inside the car...

if the ass end of the car lays as far down as it can go... the 14's or taller will more than likely hit the bottom of the speaker.....if u have enough coil in the rear to have the car sit about stock height it possibly will be okay...however to be on the safe side id still relocated the speaker...ontop of the the fitting for the cylinder might hit the torsion bars for the trunk lid, but i can recall if the cylinder sits under them....

12's will give u a weak 3 wheel....

well if the speakers are gone...u might even be able to get some 16's back there.... just run a coil with about 2 to 2 1/2 turns cut off...unless u want the rear of the car to sit lower then run the 14's

if all ur really looking for is that high standing 3 wheel..then all u need to do is notch out the part of the cars frame where the uppers come down against... extend the uppers about 1.5 inches...

if ur wanting a high ass lock up doing drop mounts will definately help u there, but that will cause u to loose ur standing 3 wheel, unless u push down on the corner and chain the ass end..but then again chaining the ass end will keep u from gettin all the lock up can from the rear...so u really need to know what u want to do.

it all depends on how low you wanna go. its a sacrifice kinda thing, unless you wanna try out some telescopics

lol. dam homie u sound like me when i was thinking of uppin my cylinder size. u want that mean 3 wheel. and u want the ass to lay. i feel u on that. but from what i seen stock cadi 2 ton coils in the rear is not a good idea if u tryna 3 wheel cuz when the car is liftd on the corner, the coils will get crushed. it sucks cuz i wantd to use them for the smooth as ride they give. but i had to go wit the 3 ton coils. its a lil stiff but it get the job done, and i get a good lay to. oh by the way this is my ride. wit 14's, its a good 3 and when i drive while 3n it goes even higher and the bumper scrapes. but i still think i can go higher. ima put some telescopics in pretty soon wit some drop mounts to get that high ass lock up. its in da shop now, im getting the rear deck done wit some custom fibr glass mounts for the speakers. FOR THIS EXACT REASON. lemme know what u think of my ride :biggrin:

youre not going to get more than 10 inches of static lockup and 14 on a 3 wheel with the factory 4 link... i bought adjustable uppers and it helped a little bit on the pinion angle...
