    Holy shit...that hurt trying to read that.

    275's up front...you MIGHT get away with it but I'd bet money that they WILL rub up front. As for the springs...the K-members differences are the motor mount setups. The actual location on the car is still the same. The A-arms may be different from year to year though. I'm not 100%. I know they are on foxes but not sure for out cars. I would get 98 springs though just to be sure. I wouldn't see any problem at all though

    Yeah i think you probablt will rub up front especially if you run the sportlines, I rub sometimes when i had my 255's up font and i have the pro kit. When you it bumps and stuff they might rub on the whell well cover. Fast5oh actually got his wireing harness like ripped apart from his front tires rubbing. We where out playin on some back roads and his blinker wouldnt turn off and it turned out his tire on the driver side ripped up some of the wiring. So ya might wanna be careful. I went to 245's now.

    hmm you might have rubbing but the main thing i think is it looks goofy with 275's up front they stick out of the wheel well and im picky about that stuff....maybe your not though

    wow those look just like my 255's i have seen some 275s that are like almost a inch hanging out :puke: and of course the rears of our cars are tucked in so it looked horrid

    1" spacers in the rear are ideal it brings the wheel out to where you want it to be
