Need pics of a car with 20's without any suspension upgrades.

I was just wondering how a Thunderbird looked with 20's without lowering it.

I'm planning on getting 245/35/20's and was wondering how much fender gap I will have.

Also, could some one tell me why I have a 2.5" gap in my front fender and only 1.5 in the back. Only thing in the back is a second battery and an amp right now.
Is it bad springs or bad shocks or both? I got 1.5" lowering springs will that fix the problem if it's just springs?

Thanks alot,

William

I wouldn't go that far Nick. No offense to you, but your T-Bird doesn't have a stance I envy by any means.




This is stock ride height correct? The car is for sale BTW, PM me if you're interested.

Nick, are you still thinking of selling it? I hope you changed your mind -- that is a really sweet ride. My wife works for PPG, so the fact that you used PPG paint is an added bonus.

Oh check out the rust on the lower rocker on that 4wd bird infront of the rear wheel. How sweet is that! That car is junk

Im prob keeping it (maybe most people who have wanted it were going to make it a daily driver and I flat out said it wouldnt work for that) and making it a 6speed after I finish the Torino in the next few months.

I think most of the rust is covered by that big ugly chrome strip at the bottom of the rockers. There might be some more covered by the chrome fender trim too. Oh, and I think there's some on the fuel door too. Why fix the rust if you can just stick some chrome pieces on there to cover it up??? Nick, you should probably cover that hole in your hood with a nice piece of chrome. That'd be sweeeeeeet
