Judging by those wheel spacers, you could probably move the axle side coilover mounts out a little bit without the tire hitting the coils on the compression side. Depending on your flex/wheel travel you may also be able to get a little more inward lean of the coilovers or move the upper mounts out the same as you move the lower mounts out. I just set up my rear 4 link and was suprised how much I could push out the axle side mounts without any real negative impacts other than putting the coilover at about a 17* inward angle at ride height.

I'm building a 4 seater F-Toy and plan on running the same engine-tranny combo as you are. Did you wire the 5VZ harness or having someone make one for you? Nice buggy for sure, good job on it!

Thanks man! I got a plug and play stand alone harness from Offroad Solutions.

If you are going auto trans I highly recommend Rory's shifter setup (RAdesigns)
