Why not? They should fit even with the 55mm KOYO or other. If you're running a big front sway, you can trim the bottom of the fan shroud to make things easier..lots of people do that. BTW when coolant starts coming out of the rad. it just means the coolant is getting hot and expanding, burping the system can be a practice in patience sometimes.

Please tell us there's no gap between the fans and radiator.

check the radiator cap. If the system isn't holding pressure cars end up overheating. Stop burping the system, put enough coolant in the overflow tank, leave the cap on, and drive the car. there shouldnt be air in the system at this point.
