Front fender wheel gap...
I have been searching, reading post after post on this and can not find a definite solution. I want to get rid of some of the fender gap on the front wheels to at least look close to the rears. With that being said, I do not want to spend $500+ to accomplish this. The car is just my daily driver, no racing, no track just some good ole cruising. I have read that using b13 front struts will lower it some. Can anyone chime in on how to do this without having my car bottom out or do any damage?

Shorten the strut, shorten the spring, lower the car, voila.

The fender gaps are there to allow the suspension to operate as intended. Do you have some suspension that is not OEM on the car now?

No, everything is stock at the moment. I need to replace the struts and I am looking at KYB GR-2s.

Unless you want it to ride like garbage (i.e. - WORSE than it was before) - you'll need to get some real lowering springs and probably upgrade your struts. If you just want the look and don't care, guess it doesn't matter.

I want the look but will not put something on there that will ride like sh*t and damage other parts. For now I guess I will have to deal with it.

K sports set the c he a pest one.I ran these on my car for 3 years with no issue the only thing that needed to replace a ford is the ball joints and the outer tie rods I maximize the height to have two fingers between the wheel and defend the line fender in stop and go traffic daily driven potholes bumps craters you name it just be careful for them or you'll be replacing your part sooner if you decide to go to this route if you need to change your ball joints or outer tie rod ends get the design Moog so you can grease these once in a blue to make a parts last a little longer
