The left front fender is sagging a little. I hit a small bump or corner and my tire will rub. I've measured the springs and don't see any difference in the springs so Im guessing the fender has dropped a little. Can I take the rod off and heat it and bent it back in place without hurting it? I do have some worn spring shackles which I will be fixing very soon but they're not so bad that it should be effecting this problem.
It is hard for me to picture the fender sagging enough for it to drag on a tire.
A picture might help
Just thought of something.
Is the driver overweight? Just kidding!
Im a little heavy but can proudly say this time last year I was 230, Today I tip the scales at a nice trim 195. I have a goal of 175 then I can eat again. I will try and get some photo's tomorrow and post them. Problem is Tuesday I'm going out of town for a couple of weeks but I will do what I can tomorrow to get some photo's. I need to address this problem.
Try a floor jack. And 2x4. Place under fender rod after Heating it up. And then raise the jack Carefull not to melt your paint on the fender
Sagging fenders is fairly common. Check out old pics back in the 20's and 30's and if look they were bent slightly or maybe sagging a little.
I guess its the reason fender braces were sometimes used. I have a set or two of front fender cross braces but never used them yet. It wouldn't be original but back when T's were in daily use it wouldn't have mattered.
