    Need Help with some rubbing

    I have an 02 WS6 and i lowered it 1.5 inches, i put on 10.5 in tires in the back (width) and when i turn kinda sharp the rub on both sides. I was wondering if there was a way to fix this with out raising the car back up? I don't have the problem at all with my stock tires.

    when you say its rubbing on both sides is it rubbing on the inner fender well? if so take a hammer and pound it out till it rubs no more its called the BFH mod..if its rubbing on the out side then you will have to roll the fender...

    I"m not to sure, when it turn sharp you can hear a rubbing noise like the rim, or inside of the tire is rubbing on something, not sure what it is.

    Check your LCA Lower control arms..you might be rubbing there..you have any suspension mods besides it being lower?? or just wider wheels/tires...maybe a adj pan hard bar is in order...

    Yes, get an adj. PHR, and do the BFH mod. I did the BFH mod on mine, and I was rubbing with 275's....no more rub, very nice traction. I doubt it is the LCA, you would have BIGGER problems if the tire was rubbing on the LCA; I.E.: Bent Axle.

    That tire would be all over the place to have to be rubbing on the LCA.

    Same Problem

    I have Eibach Prokit and also have 18X10.5 inch rims.

    I had the rubbing too. I played around with the adjustable panhard and it really made a difference. If yours is rubbing on the inside of the wheel well toward the front of the car - Maybe at a 10 o'clock position on the drivers side it is similar to mine. You can pound that in once you get everything tuned in.
    What size rubber do you have - does it keep it stock height?

    Is the car sitting even ?

    Does it rub more in one way than another?

    Have you put on stock rims just to see if it still rubs with them?
