Is anyone having any problems with rubbing with 1.6 drop. I left wheel rubs when I take fast curves to left. Any suggestion on how to cure it. I have SQ2 with 265/35/22 pirelli pzero. Is that normal?

No experience here, seems that your Outside diameter is more than 2/3" (0.67") bigger than stock 29.303" vs 28.629", couple that with your 1.6" drop and much fatter tires rubbing is no suprise. I don't know if this size is available but a 245/35/22 would result in an od of 28.751 which is nearly identical to stock (0.12"). This size tire I would expect would eliminate your rub. Do any other 22 runners have this problem, maybe your eibachs actually dropped you more than 1.6" if others with the same mod and size tire don't have a rub. If it is tire size and not spring error then the question of the day is: is a 245/35/22 tire available in a brand you want and what kind of credit do you get on a trade in if you go that route? Rubbing is dangerous and will result in eventual catastrophic failure most likely when you are rounding a curve on a two lane road approaching an 18 wheeler.

The rubbing occurs when I took an exit at 60 mph, as long as I take a sharp curve like an exit at 50 then its ok. I guess the rubbing really occurs when I take exits to fast. I wanted to see how much better it would take curves. I might put one of those bars that keep body flex to a minimum

stability bar? do those really work? I've never tried it, but it might do the trink since you rub only on a fast turn/angle...

good luck, post back...

They do work on cars with weak flexible unibodies like Mustangs (much like a strut tower brace) but not the C with it's stiff MB roots. I doubt a chassis bar will make any difference.
