Howdy friends.

I know I rarely contribute here, but I'm hoping someone can answer this for me. If I use some 2" drop spindles, will this create a clearance problem with my stock wheels and tires against the lower control arm or strut rod? If anyone has used spindles and stock wheels, I'd love to hear about it.

Thanks in advance.

You may have to trim a little on the fender but your gonna have trouble with the cross member under the oil pan. My mustang has the 302 v8 in it and I lowerd it 2" by reducing the springs.Tires rubbed only if in a turn and incomming or out going in driveways, but speed bumps and dips on the road made the cross member hit. also if you have a front spoiler don't do it or you can kiss it goodbye. I recked the i had and got tired of driving slow for bad road conditions. Put it back to normal hight.
