    18x9.5 tires rubbing

    Recently installed BMR lowering springs, Founders Performance LCA's with relocation brackets, adj PHB and KYB struts. I now get fender rub when going over bridges and dips in the road at high speed. I'm guessing I need taller bump stops. Is that a correct assumption or should I be looking at hammering the fenders? If I do need bump stops, any suggestion as to what and where to purchase?

    Like inner fenders? Or fender lip?

    Outer fenders. You can see where it rubs on the tires. Not horrible but enough that you can hear and feel it. First road trip other than around town.

    I had that problem until I got my fenders professionally rolled. Never had a problem since. You could try doing it yourself but if your not REALLY careful you'll crack the paint/distort the quarter panels

    Is it only on one side, or both?

    Both. New bump stops are in. Will install when back from Florida.
