    I'm glad to see this thread, I just ordered a set of silver FR500s yesterday. Now it seems to be a PITA to find 94-95 spindles.

    How much beating and fender rolling did you have to do to get them to fit? What size are the rear tires? 315/35/17?

    Yes, 315/35/17, a lot of pounding and rolling. It wasn't easy and I will never do it again. For a straight line or show car this set up is fine. I rub in the back if I take a corner too fast. Speed bumps are fine, but the bottom of steep inclines also cause me to rub. I could possibly roll/flair the fender a tad more but its going to take more than a baseball bat to do it.
