    Tire Rub

    Need advice on a little problem. I have 17x11's on the rear of my TA and just lowered it with Eibach pro-kit springs. I get serious tire rub on the inner fender lips every time I hit a bump. Has anyone ever delt with this problem? I have talked to a couple of other guys who run the same set up and they have had no rubbing issues. Any advice on how to solve this problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    I was getting tire rub on the inner fender lips after the spring install. I rolled the lips and all is well for now.
