Rubbing inside the wheel well

Some of you guys know that I dropped the Alty a few weeks ago and I love how it looks now, however, I noticed that I can hear the tire rubbing inside the wheel well when I am turning into a parking spot or into my driveway. Any of you guys will lowered cars had a problem with that?

yea, without it I was contantly rubbing and hitting my fender when going over any little bump. You can type in camber arms or control arms in goggle and it will give all the info on what they do.

They are not to expensive but I got mine installed by Nissan and they charged $500+ to install them (CRAZY). I know alot of private owned shops that whould do it for cheaper. If I knew what I know now smh

I see some of those online. I will have to get some and get them installed. Yeah I saw your where the wheel/tire had hit the fender. I don't think mine is hitting outside, but I can tell it is hitting inside. That fender well cover is loose now, and I know it wasn't like that before the drop.

That sounds worse then most. How tall are your tires? 40s,45s, 50s?

Go 40s on your next tires. That'll help some. Save you about a half an inch. You probably wont be able to crank the wheel all the way left or right again. Give up some of the stock comfort for aftermarket too.

Yeah, I realized that when I put those lowering springs on a few weeks ago. It's bearable. Thank goodness they are repaving 565. Timing is impeccable.

That's strange that you're getting rubbing with just lowering springs. How much of a drop do you have? I'd call the spring manufacturer and see if this is supposed to happen. I'd also check the fender well liner to make sure all the clips are still in there.
