    I’ll post pics later but it’s legit I promise unless someone has a better idea.

    Basically I put a wheel on it with backspacing that pushes the wheel out to the fender lip. Not quite flush but looks pretty good (in my opinion).

    Because the springs were worn out and had those crappy helper shims I. It I replaced them with 2” springs and and new shocks (these were a set not separate prices by diffrent manufacturers).

    Even before the drop the fenders were hitting the tires over bumps and damaging the tires. It’s better now but still not great. I think rolling the fenders will help.

    This is before the 2” drop. The suspension has so trash the fender would hit the tire over bumps. Like I said it’s better now but still hits.

    Gotcha, you silly kids lowering your muscle cars... stock height and fat rubber is where its at

    Not sure what your wheel and tire sizing is but this guy looks like he made out fine without rolling the fenders. Link


    Are the new springs a stiffer rate or progressive?

    As far as a roller goes Im sure pretty much any euro performance shop in the area would have one but for what they would charge you could buy one https://www.eastwood.com/ew-fender-r...SABEgLCrvD_BwE

    He has the exact wheel and tire combo and it’s certainly lowered front and rear. But there is little information about the suppension. How much is invested? I’m sure it’s more than I can afford.

    If you have ideas I’m all ears cause there must be a better option then rolling them but I’m at a loss.

    Here you can see the tire damage. There’s a little paint damage on the outside lip of the fender that makes me think rolling fit won’t help as the tire sits to far out to clear a rolled fender.

    They are pretty cheap on Eastwood.

    BE sure to use a heat gun when you do it or you are sure to crack the paint.

    Based on the countless Foxbody guys that have done the same without Iíll visual effects, I say go for it.
