It's making me crazyy.. it's actually really bad that I hear this whiny rubbing sound when cruising at low speeds. Is this normal? I mean It looks awesome and handling is deff improved but I don't think it should rub this much anyone else have this issue if so is there a fix? I bet I am scraping the whole inside of my wheel wells

Re: Tire Rub with Eibach springs..especially when making a sharp right turn (zigger)

It's probably a combination of your camber, spacers (or lack there of), and tires. Did you check your ride height on both sides? Maybe a spring is not seated correctly. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Oh ziggie, what tires (brand and size) are you running?

I have Eibachs and 18's (235/40/18 F1's) and 5 mm spacers and I still have rubbing...probably always will unless I go to 10 mm spacers but that's another investment and I'm not sure that will even work......
