Question Wheel spacer opinion for sport

Hell y'all, I have 20mm rear and 15 mm spacers from H&R with stud replacements on the Sport Rays. Just put on my Swift springs all around on OEM sport shocks w/ SPL camber arms and bolts, OEM tires.
Question 1.... The front now more than ever don't look flush anymore. Should I replace the front with 20mm or 25mm since i took measurements and it looks like 13mm off based on the initial 15mm in place.

Question 2...... Should I just take the rear 20 mm and place on front and buy 25mm for the rear? can't find stud replacement 25 mm anywhere.( where can I buy em, only bolt ons available)
Thank you

Have you had an alignment after installing the springs?

No alignment yet, no front camber arms either just rear. Are u saying 25 front or rear Chuy? Where can I find 25 front stud replacement? Will I need to row the fenders like that?

Okay, I thought so. Get your alignment first! that should help bring your front wheels outward a little, then you can determine how big a spacer to run. You're still going to need a bigger spacer than 15s, but I don't think 25 is necessary, imo you should be fine with 20mm upfront.

My front cambers right after installing the springs were around -3*, I had 20mm on and they were sunked in quite a bit. After my alignment were done cambers are now sitting around -2.3 up front, and my front are now pretty flush with fenders. Prior to all of this my front wheels were a sticking out a good 5mm with the 20 spacers.

How can I adjust front camber if I don't adjustable front control arms? Or can front be minor adjusted?

Minor adjustments can be done in the front. I'm still going to get front camber kit at some point now that Z1 just released their front camber arms at a more affordable price.

Yes sir. My front tires are going to run me 300+ a piece, I think I'm good spending 300 on some Z1 arms!
