How far is the tire from the strut up front?

Do you see any issues with the rear wheels sticking out too far?

I was looking at the 19"x10.5" ET22 wheels. I was concerned about hitting the fenders with the 11" wide wheels.

Thanks

I don't have a visual on me, but there's a ton of room from what I can feel on hand. I was actually going to revise the mods list to include DSE Coils at a 1.5" drop if that can give you any perspective. My recent study is to pair DSE with Bilstein B6 and some JPSS Aero to combat front lift.

How it sits with new struts / springs. Headers are scraping over bumps now. Appointment at Family Auto Service in Belmont tomorrow. I will have the alignment sheet to post on here.

Thank you I might tackle the rest of the suspension after alignment, although I am avidly searching for a 1/LE splitter that is not $500+. If you know anyone who is selling one, please send them my way.

Sure, I'm not aware of any for sale. The pics showed up on my home PC.
Why the Bilsteins and not Konis?

I do not know much about Koni. A friend of mine had an '06 Mustang GT with Konis and it seemed to suit the car and the driver very well! I was attracted to the monotube design from Bilstein and always wanted parts from Detroit Speed. Recent post publications from JPSS solidified my interest for Bilstein. I have another friend with a built 2nd gen Cummins that runs Bilstein which also inspired me to do the same for the Camaro.

Successful alignment today. First time driving with the new setup. The car is reaching new limits and requires much more speed to break confidence. I have not decided on a new clutch package yet, and am also prospecting new axles.

Thank you. I did not measure. The drop was significant.
