Hey everyone I noticed on my car that my front wheels seem to be a lot more spaced away from my chassis than the rear. I see similar models and they don't seem to have the issue. I'm wondering if something needs to be adjusted or replaced. Here's some photos. ImageUploadedByAG Free1386118616.359037.jpg ImageUploadedByAG Free1386118634.070292.jpg

The front fender is cut higher to accommodate the weight of the engine. If you take a tape measure and measure the distance from just behind the front wheel to the ground and do the same for just in front of the rear wheel, against the side skirt. The distance is the same.

Its normal to have more of a gap in the front (aka reverse rake) on the 7th gen. Aftermarket lowering springs are designed to eliminate that gap along with the better handling a lower center of gravity provides.

Are you sure it's not because there is more snow packed in the back than in the front?:lmao:

I think it's because the front wheels need more room, for turning. The rear wheels stay straight, so they need less clearance.

Well see that's my exact problem. The back is so low that snow packs very easily and when I hit bumps it makes a big loud bang noise so I have to constantly go to the car wash to remove it.
Thanks for the input everyone.

Get some coil spring risers/boosters and use them only during the winter/snow season.
