2011 endeavor awd cannot fit larger tires on suv because of spring mount 1/2" above tire. I have looked and looked for a coil over strut but nobody can help. I guess endeavors are just too few in number for any aftermarket suppliers to care. Nobody can cross reference the stock stuts to another mfg/suv either, but 90% of struts are all the same!!! If I had a toyota, no problem!!! Plenty of aftermarket parts for those!!! Can anyone help??? I just want larger tires on the suv but cant do it?????

I'm in the same boat as you buddy. You can upgrade from 235/65/17 to 245/65/17 with no issues. I have read somewhere on here that someone had 245/70/17 wild peak tires with no issue but i want to verified that before screwing myself and buying tires that size. The front strut suspension sucks due to the design so we are limited in aftermarket parts.
