    When lowering car to reduce wheel well gap, do most of you try to keep the gap space in the front and rear wheel wells roughly the same. Or will the rear usually have a larger gap than the front?

    I leveled my last GTS out to prevent the nose from scraping.

    Wheel offset plays a big part too. If you're running stock wheels, consider spacers.

    The ride height should be about 1/2 in lower in front versus the rear in order to keep the designed handling characteristics. (Per Mark Jorgensen and the service manual.) Not that something else wouldn't work for individual driving conditions.
