How much of a stretch are those tires on there? That would play the biggest factor. If there is alot of stretch that alone can suck up 20mm away from the strut. Any pics of the wheels?

Found out what the problem was it was a bent strut called Jeff at 240sxmotoring and he said to measure them, and the passenger one is about.5" longer (bent) then the driver side. Doesn’t sound like much but that is why it was sitting on the tires. Driver side was fine, so getting a new strut tmw and a small slip on spacer just cause I don’t like hoe close the in side tire is to the inside of the strut.



Thanks for the info guys!
