I dont know how this is happeneing, but it is.

I have an EL XR6, lowered with king springs super lows and monroes gt sport shocks nd struts.

now when I do a hard right, or if og over a stupid bump, I heard a grinding noise coming from the front left. at first i thought that i was under steering, but i then realised that it was the guard cutting into the outside of the tyre

has anyone else had, or heard of this problem?

can anyone tell me what is wrong?

cheers

take it to a panel beater and get them to roll the guard.

They fold the inside of the wheel arches in so that it stops cutting the tyre, however if they do a dodgy job, they may crack the paint.
