Default Felt?

Not sure what you call it, but the stuff that is in the rear wheel wells. Let's call it felt for now.

Does anyone have it in the front wheel wells? I assume it is for some type of noise reduction? If so why is it not in the front? Or am I just missing it on mine?

Just curious.

My front fender liners are hard molded plastic.

i believe it's just the rear. i can only associate that the front has better firewall design and such so putting felt there for insulation is unnecessary

Thanks guys. I've always wondered about it, and thought mine might just have been missing. Good to know its not.
