thank you for your input on the wheel and suspension forums and such. I have been lurking for weeks, and scheming about my LEAF mods and I finally pulled the trigger thanks to all the great advice.
The body shop put 1" spacers in the rear. Sorry I am not exactly clear about the difference between offsets and spacers, but according to an email from the body shop, they put 1" spacers in the rear.
Secondly, I get your drift, I find the ride pretty jarring on our cracked concrete roads. I caught air the other day merging onto the 52 East at about 70 mph coming downhill from La Jolla. And potholes are devastating. The stock suspension was much smoother, but with the Tein coilovers ... the cushy ride is pretty much over. However, I find the handling to be excellent, and I am just starting to get an idea of what it can do. I would like to find a way to make the ride a little cushier, but if that cannot be done with some adjustments, then so be it.
(edit) In Late 2012 I lowered the car more and the ride is much smoother. (edit)
I raced around in my beloved 1991 MR2 Turbo for the last 20 years (300K mi) so I am accustomed to sportiness. The LEAF was my replacement car.
