The inner lower control arm bushes were not good in the EL XRs.
Mine were replaced as they were chewed out causing my tyres to rub on the guards.
Once fixed the problem was gone.

how low is it? I agree with camber/castor kit, should cost u around 200fitted, or do it yourself..

Also roll the guards too, this will help the cause exspecially if you have superlows.
