37 120 Fender Clearance issue
Just popping in

My 37 120 Convertible coupe sits too low in the front and the tires hit the fenders occasionally. I put new coil springs in recently (ordered from Kanter/accounted for the side spares). But, the left side still scrapes. I have standard thin whitewalls on the car. Any suggestions?
Could this just be camber adjustment? It's more a height issue than anything, it seems......

Did you use new spring pads? Flack will know more about this then me… but I know there are pads in there.

My bmw z3 even had different thickness pads that could be had to fine tune adjustments on the rear.

"Standard thin whitwalls" not particularly useful info, what size are they?

Do we assume the riding height is less on the left front than the right front?

Just when Does this scraping occur? When the the tire is in a left turn? Right turn? Straight ahead?
