Okay dude you gotta tell me the specs on the rear!! lol. I'm looking at getting some Adjustable control arms for the back but it only gives me from +1 - -3 camber. Is that good enough?? Cause I'm rubbing pretty bad, I got some spring boosters helping it not rub that much lol.

well I dont know the exact camber adjustment off the top of my head...i will have to dig that up from the alignment sheet. But it is only the factory camber adjuster that is adjusted to the maximum setting. I have my rear fender cut and rolled if that has anything to do with it?

If I bump up the air on all four corners once i can. The rear on all down sits in the stretch of the wheel/ tire so it would damage if i tried to roll all down.

they are very thick, you need to have someone cut the two parts where the fender joins and then roll it smooth.

You might be to low and tires are moving the fenders as you turn or your rims are to close to the coils aka mayb spacers. Or something else that I can't think of

My tires are not hitting the fenders. It almost sounds like the spring itself.

The spring is popping because of not having any preload, my coils did that same noise once I had put in shorter springs up front. If you're not very low you could put the helper spring back in to help with this noise if it bothers you that much.

Judging from the picture you posted, if you put the helper spring back in you'd still be able to sit at that height, and probably even still be able to go down some.

He said it sounds like a popping or knock sound, which is how mine sounded when I'd turn the wheel because of having no preload on spring.

When my wheel ground on the coils it was more of a grinding noise.

But his wheels are sunk a lot so that could also be a possibility, maybe even a combination of the two
