This...

How long ago was your driveway put in, OP?
Drive way was put in about 3 years ago and winter is starting to settle in so the temps have been fluctuating quite a but lately (+/- 50 degrees in the last week).

In regards to the tire posts, tires are the same size but they are different brands. I went from Bridgestone Potenza's to Michelin PS2's.

Interesting thought on fully extending the suspension when it was on the lift. Maybe it's just time for coilovers. Thanks for the help guys!

Seriously man, Its your different brand of tire, they are not all identical a Bridgestone could easily be 1/16 or more taller then your new Michelins causing you vehicles height to differ. Which would make your car scrap the driveway.

Full extension of your suspension on lift will not create a difference in ride height, worn struts and shocks will not create a difference ride height. Worn coils, yes but at the exact same time you replaced your tires with a different brand? I think the answer to your question is fairly obvious here now.
