i have super lows and my car scrubs real bad when the wheels are turned, it is so bad to the point of the top of the front left wheel arch where the panel is bent up out if veiw gets bent back down when i go up a driveway with the left wheel first? wat can i do to stop this? any help and a rough price wud be great, eg do they make bigger rubber that sits on the top of the spring? just slightly like 5-10 mm just to lift the body up a tad so there is enough room for the wheel to turn freely?

if you havnt had them rolled it should.

rolling gets rid of the lip inside the wheel arch and gives you probably 1cm extra clearance i guess?

but will also get rid of the sharpish edge which will grab your wheel and rip nice chunks out if your lucky

id trust a body shop over a mechanic doing it ;)

if they see the car they should be able to tell you if rolling the guard will be enough
