Fender Modification?

Hey all, just installed a MM K-member & a-arms on my 90 GT and now can't even turn my wheels due to the longer wheelbase of the a-arm position. (Severe rubbing on front ground effect piece) Trying to run FR500's with nitto 245/40/18. Anyone run into a situation like this? I know the 91-93 fenders have a bigger opening but not sure if it's enough to alleviate problem?

Wow looks good but the rub sucks *** I'm running 40's low profile try a set of those poly urethane blocks in the springs.my son dropped his 96 a little lower than expected and put them in and he was happy.

91-93 fenders are noticeably wider and a very common mod for 90s and below running something like you are. Not sure if you got the regular or forward offset MM arm but you can get the ones that provide 0 movement with their K member. I'd try the fender first and if not then you'll have to eat the cost of the A arms and see what you can get selling the ones you have .

Its all on the MM site.

The regular setup moves them .75" forward, the forward offset arms move them 1.25" forward, the rear offset arms keep them in the same location.

The longer the wheelbase the better but then you can run into fitment issues as we can see here.

Thanks for all the replies guys, talked to MM and they say to keep the forward offset arms (I have the ones that move everything forward 3/4") looks like I'm in the market for a set of 91-93 fenders
