    fender trying to eat my tire

    ok i have a newly built 408.... the problem im havin is when i punch it the passenger rear quarter panel is biting the tire. how do i fix this. the car has the eibach prokit, adjustable panhard, and 3 point subframe connectors. i ordered a adjustable torque arm. but what else do i need to solve this problem. rear control arms?? race shocks??? whats the most effective route.

    tires are 315/35 17. the car is an auto with a ss4000 stall. ive already bent the inside lip of the rear quarter upwards but problem still occurs


    any input would be greatly appreciated
    501rwhp, 538 rwtq thru an A4 and a 4000 stall (n/a) not to shabby i say

    the only are i see rubbing its still rubbing the inside lip that has been bent over i guess i need to tighten up my suspension if the torque arm doesnt stop it then i guess il go with rear lower control arms unless someone has a better suggestion

    Adjust the panhard bar to shift the rear slightly toward the drivers side. What shocks do you have?
