ya its the inner wheel well towards where you sit at that rubs for me i think the guy that owned me car b4 me or whatever lowered it with some...kinda springs cuz my car sits just like his car same hight and everything but my car rubs on the inner wheel well. also my springs are probably so old and softened over the years that could be a issue. how wide are those rims?

the name on the springs are called "suspension techniques" i know they are a brand but no way of knowing what size they are... what is the stock spring height?

also is there a rubber bushing or inset that the springs sit on in some sort of cup i just pulled this rubber thing that was hanging out of the bottom of my spring... idk man... thank you for your time and help.

There is only so much you can do over the internet with this stuff, just get in there and see what works, the internets are not a substitute for hands on experience.

What size pads do you have? are the springs seated right?

IE minilite knock offs 15x7 20mm offset with 195 size rubbers

Rolled fenders (on original paint!)

Springs/ 2 dot pad/ and some thin metal spacers (replacement pads are ridiculously expensive)
