Rubbing noise when I turn

Happens at low speed or a least moe noticeable. I looked to see if tire rubbed against plastic but no indication. Seems to come from suspension.

Hard to tell without knowing what your suspension set up is. It could be a number of things.

If you have coilovers and wide wheels etc..., that could be a possible culprit.

Im having same issue almost like something is "bumping/ slight drag" after many people checking, think i found it today. When i grab my front fender and lift i heard it. I recently has st coils installed not sure why but i sprayed front w silicone lube and seems to be good. After have friends and shops tell me, "not sure what that is but everythings tight."


Pm me if you figure yours out

This isn't the inner wheel hitting the strut is it? Or the tyre rubbing on the fender if you are too low?

I have the same problem. It's only on the passenger side though.

It looks like I can slightly see thread marks on the fender, but why only on the passenger side? It gets annoying hearing it.
