Just installed my rear springs from DSE after buying them a year ago. and the car looks SICK!!! still have to do the fronts this week but I was more concerned about the rear tires fitting. I have the fenders rolled but nothing else. I went with Bilstein shocks.

Looks real nice. I like that you rolled fender but kept trim. I had mine rolled when I bought car but when I had car painted I un rolled them to put trim on.

No rubbing at all. I had my 200 lb brother get in the trunk and bounce a bit and it didn't rub, also took it for ice cream with my wife and I in the car and it didn't rub.

Any close ups of the tire to rolled lip area? Do you have aluminum drums? Any problems with interference from the rjc cross flow exhaust with the 2" drop springs?

I tried taking some pics but they didnt turn out great. Stock drums. No problems at all with the exhaust. Everything has plenty of room.
