    Wow that’s fancy. Very nice fix. Mine also rubbed after long trips. I just tied it back with some fishing line. Hasn’t done since.

    I was stating that since I am on methods and not stock wheels it is not an exact comparison, but my experience can still be applied.

    I was stating that after having more positive caster in my alignment that I noticed more rubbing than I did prior. Which makes sense as your are leaning the top of the knuckle back towards the firewall.

    Was that what you were asking or did I miss-understand?

    To try to give some other insight, if your IWE system is starting to experience a vacuum failure, it will sound exactly like tire rub. I was getting the exact same symptom and occasionally in tight turns in parking lots I’d get a sound that was exactly like tire rub. Couldn’t see any point of contact, replaced the $20 check valve, and it was all gone

    Thank you all for the replies! It turns out it was the plastic liner moving toward the wheel. I pushed it back and plan to tie it back after changing to mid-perch. Hopefully doing that this weekend!
