    Default Front wheel not centerd

    I have 85 GT upr kmember,. Arms, caster camber plates,coil overs, fox ball joint with spacers, 94/95 spindles. After mounting everything up my front wheels are not centered in fender well which is causing tires to hit on the bottom part of fender. I adjusted the casters as far as possible which improved it some but not enough. Anyone have any ideas as to what would be causing this issue. I was talking to someone the other day and they ask if maybe I have sn95 aarms instead of foxbody. In think there a little longer would this cause the issue I'm having . Thanks.

    I seem to recall some aftermarket a-arms will cause this. Which ones do you have?
    79 Pace Car - 331, t5
    79 Pace Car- 302, 4 spd
    79 Cobra - working on 351w, t5
    82 Capri- working on 302, t5
    82gt - working on 408w, c4

    I also went through the same thing. Old school D&D K member and tubular arms. Many aftermarket companies change the geometry to have an effect on handling due to more castor. I killed 2 birds with one stone. I had a bit of a fitment issue with my 3.5" downpipe, the hood wouldn't clear the intake due to the windsor motor and now the wheels are too far forward in the wheel wells. I tossed on a 1/2" K member spacer kit, and slid the K member back as far as it would possibly go and it helped with the wheel centering and the downpipe issue. I haven't tossed the hood back on to test that fitment yet. I am not 100% certain that I won't rub, so I picked up some adjustable control arms too just to be able to pull the wheels in a bit (I have new edge spindles, so my wheels stick out 8mm more than your setup with the early sn spindles)
