    Rubbing Noise

    My car makes a soft rubbing sound whenever I am turning right, usually at slow speeds. I have also notice that noise a little more when there is a little dip in the turn. I lowered on eibachs prokits and i am runnin 225/40/18 tires. I have had this setup for about 3 months now but just notice this noise so I don't think it is the rubbing of the lining. The noise seems to be coming from the front driver side wheel area. I don't think it makes this noise when i am turning left. Can anyone guide me where to begin search for this problem.

    Try this. Coat the inside of your tire with some kind of harmless paint that will show easily, don't slap a lot on. Go for a drive around the block, make the turns and get the rubbing noise to happen. Get the car up again and check to see if the tire is rubbing again something when turned. Or you could just check for some kind of rubbing marks now.

    i think i found the problem, it was the rubber fender lining that slipped off and was touching the tires when the car bounces. Im gonna see if the noise is gone now
