.i think i have mentioned this before, but i will put it up again..i have raced using the STR ball ends running zero offset and i ran for 5 hours straight at sun valley with the same ball ends..i did not experience ANY rubbing issues and i was able to mod my C-hubs to where i have really nice steering throw. here are the part numbers:

make sure you adjust your camber and toe once you change over.

no grinding necessary, no extreme mods..no wide offset rims, no 23mm offset, just run your zero offset rims and you are fine.

even if you dremel your stock ball ends down, they will still hit when you dremel your C-hubs to get more steering. i tried dremeling the stock ball ends..they still rub. this is why i suggested what i did.

you wont get as much steering if you go with 28mm offset as you do if you go with zero offset. either way you wont get any rubbing issues.
