[DML] Re: Front Stabilizer Bar



At one of our Spring Socials there was a car on the lift for
inspection. It had a BAD rubbing problem between the front wheels and
the sway bar. It turned out to be the sway bar was installed upside
down. We did not correct it at that time, it was left for the owner to
get it done when he got home (after driving very carefully and no
sharp turns!). It can also be caused by the wrong tire size and
lowering the car. Turning radius is built in by the stops on the
spindle and the lower control arm and are not changable easily. If the
tie rod ends were worn enough to let the tires rub you would not be
able to drive the car straight down the road. On one car I did I had
to install washers where the sway bar meets the lower control arm to
move the tire back about 1/4 inch so it would be in the right spot for
alignment. It is VERY BAD for the tires to come in contact with the
suspension.
