With a 45-47mm offset on 7.5" wheels there is no problem whatsoever.18" wheels have even more clearance as the damper is at an angle.
For my purposes, it is enough of a change. Rebuilding the suspension might be more appreciated if it were more of a track car than a road car. My point is there are only problems if you percieve there to be a problem. There may be no suspension problem, there are just personal preferences.
