Foxbody rear springs? Here we go again

Long story short I got a 1990 v8 lx convertible with Eibach lowering springs, Bilstein suspension and bbk non-adjustable rear arms.

The problem is that 245-45-17 tires will rub badly as it's too low, can't imagine now my 275-45-17 to fit in for drag races..

What are you guys suggesting, I read a lot and figure out maybe some "GT springs" would be good just not sure where to find these?

Thanks to everyone,
N2o Happy

I have wheels from a 99 gt, often called starfish model.. sorry cant tell the offset but is rubing at the fender lip, small chunk of tire have been cut-off

I will have the fender rolled this spring but its not going to be enough as I need a small lift of at least 3/4"

Yea you might just have to lift it back up a little and roll the lips. I have my v8 rear spring cut one coil off. it looks good and is good for the strip. Fox v8 lx/gt rear springs have a good spring rate for the strip

From what I understand fox 4 cylinder springs and v8 springs are the same but the 4s are a little bit shorter. Cheap easy lowering mod used by local guys around here. Just food for thought.
