Gap in front is 2 fingers. All from the Prokit. I didn't find any rough road spring pads in my front strut to remove.
Gaps are similar to OEM Sport suspension.
Approx a year on the stock Sachs xi shocks. Comfortable, sportier handling.
looks good.. not sure how it would look with rims...i want no gap. low as i can go. slamber lamps style.
