I have eibach sportline springs on which make it sit lower than most. I haven’t installed my maximum Motorsport camber plates yet. Would -3 camber give enough clearance so it won’t rub ? Looking into the Andersson Composite fenders. They say .400 wider than stock. Could be enough clearance. I love GT 350 fenders but don’t want to be a poser lol ..what do you think of the one in pic?

    Every degree of negative camber you add will move the top of the tire inward by about 1/4", so armed with that information, you can figure out if it will clear or not. The GT350 fenders clear for sure, but I think you have to replace everything - hood, bumper, etc - to use them.

    Put those on! How much clearance do you have to the strut? And what spacers are you using?

    jAj the Anderson fenders fit Regular mustangs only. The305’s are for track only. Will use PP wheels on street.

    I have 1” spacers. I didn’t measure it when I installed wheels but it is close. I don’t think a 3/4” spacer would work.

    If the camber plates don't pull it in enough, I'd consider slots/slugs/camber bolts if you need a bit more. At least until you get wider fenders...or maybe roll them out a bit more since the paint already needs fixin'.

    Good luck either way.
