I've got the grand prix wide crosslaces on the front of my '97, to clear the F-body brakes, on the standard 225-60r16 tire that was used on the bonneville/grand prix/etc.

I want to say the front is about 3/4" lower than stock ride height, though I haven't measured it.

Problem is that the tire rubs the front lower corner of the fender at certain steering angles. Same sizes on the rears look like they clear without issue. Did they really make the wheel well on the LeSabre smaller? I didn't have this issue with my '86, the '93, so just surprised that it's different on the '97.
