So looks like from 7cm to a 4 cm wheel gap in the front, I just measured mine it has a 5cm gap in front with SE sport.. wandering what the Ti stock handling pack gap is...

I have a stock Ti Handling Package. Put up a photo of what gap you want measured, and I'll measure mine! EDIT: Do you mean the rise on the previous page photo? Between top of wheel and the wheel well lip? It seems to be 1 5/8" (my tape has no metric) so that's about 4 cm. The lip to the center of the hub is 14" right on the money, 35.56 cm according to my calcs.

Yes, gap between top of tire and fender, mine pic below

Looks like mine is at 2" (~5cm)
Sounds like yours is about the same as with racing handling pack?... - maybe I should be thinking to upgrade with ti handling pack struts, shocks, springs...

Yes, I thought that was what you meant, thanks for confirming. 1-5/8 or 4cm for my "gap". So, I suppose, switching to everything on the handling pack would get you 3/8" or about 1cm lower? Don't forget the wheel/tire size (235/40ZR18 on 18x8's)... And it (handling pack) does make the turning radius bigger, for sure. That's not a happy thing for me in our yard parking situation.

Not sure if the radius becomes an issue only with the 18 rims.. I have the stock SE sport 16's and if I decide to upgrade will probably do 17 so shouldnt have a radius issue..
Now I'm curious to see pricing for Ti handling pack parts..

Only the Ti handling package has the most severe steering limiters, the cars equipped with the 15-17" wheels don't have the same limiters in place, so they don't face the same issue even when 18" wheels are mounted to the car.

Yep so I'm thinking one could get the OEM struts, shocks, springs made for Ti handling pack but only these so you dont get steering limiters.. Im going to search on fordparts.com today if not too crazy in the office..

I'm wondering if I were to switch to a 17-inch 225 wheel/tire if I could get my steering limiters reset to "standard". I have to make an extra move to get out of my parking spot at home because of that limit (vs. the non-handling package focus). One of those annoyances of life.
