The hight needs to have at least an Inch+ of difference before it doesn't sense the correct value.

No not all the GT's from 99-04 came with ABS or traction control.

right now i'm running 255/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear
i heard that it could be the cause of the gears. when mechanics install them they very often damage the abs sensor.

Yes I am. It was an option from 99-04, but Ford put it on 90% of the GT's.
