    My front tires rub when I turn and when I go over decent sized bumps. I was looking into a Bilstein 5100/Eibach. Would that be a smart idea?

    That idea would work to a certain extent... you would need bigger bumps to make your tires rub. Beyond that some trimming would probably help to get rid of the interference.

    But I would also like to get bigger tires soon. I would like to go from my 31s to maybe 33s. How much trimming are we talking?

    I have 33s and the only trimming I did was at the rear corner of the front wheel wells.
