I saw a bus conversion this summer that the owner had modified the wheel wells. He cut them down to 2.5 inches deep from the standard 13 inches. He did this so they would not be interfere with the internal outlay. Because of the stiffness of the suspension he stated that he had not had the wheels touch out on the lowered wheel wells.
I am a bit skeptical, however lowering them would free up a fair amount of space inside. So, what do you all think? Has anyone tried this?
I am thinking of dropping them down to a depth of 4 inches. Do you think this will cause problems with the re-certification or road inspection in the future?
Thanks a bunch all.
I posted some photo's in the gallery of his bus. He dropped it right down to the deck and built up everything fresh. It was quite roomy inside, but had a very tank like exterior.
