    Default Wheels rubbing issue?

    Ok this one is a prob ive never encountered before. The only thing that is starting to cross my mind is that i may have a bent stut or shock.

    Basically have 14" rims. not sure on width or offset. Some Watanabe look a likes. Fitted fine before. Ive put Tein coilovers on with trd inserts and camber tops. Now my tyres are scraping on the inner guards not the outter. So i cant just roll it.

    I did have full negative camber which i have wound most of it out now so there is a bit of camber. i have also tried raising it but still scrapping on 3 1/4 lock. Just wondering y ive never heard ne1 else with this problem.

    Looking on the forums people are talking about extra lock spacers and im having issues with standard lock

    Do u guys that lower ur cars and put more lock on do more mods to the inner guards of ur car. If so what?

    get better offset wheels (more -ve / less +ve)

    think about what things would contribute to it hitting there
    and its blatently obvious...

    The wheel is rubbing on the Seam in the arch. Can u hammer those down????

    Ive adjusted camber and ride height. Castor is as far forward as the factory can go.

    yeah bash those down. rims sound to be pretty positively offsetted. longer LCA or spacers will also help

    +1 on removing plastic inner guard liners, its one of the first things you should do on a lowered 86/70/71/72
