    Fender Rolling Tool/Differential Issue

    Hey guys,

    I've somehow been running into fender rubbing issues on my 2013 hatch running 18x8.75 w/ 245/40/18 tires...at STOCK HEIGHT! And I'm not talking "some rubbing", I'm talking huge gashes out of my sidewall!

    So....I've resorted to rolling my fenders. I have a friend who has a roller tool but it attaches to the hub (with AWD it won't move without resistance).


    QUESTION: I had my car out of gear with the parking brake off. I moved the hub probably both ways about 7-8 inches in each direction. After realizing it was hopeless I detached the roller tool and that was that. I am worried I did harm to my differential. No signs of anything bad. But I'm wondering if I did.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks

    Helps a lot to jack up all 4 corners and it can move all tires instead of fighting differential slipping...even better if you take all 4 tires off at once and it goes very easily without all that extra weight to be spinning.. Saves a lot of arm strength with the fender roller also lol
