Driver side front wheel rubs on swaybar

While making a sweeping right turn on a exit ramp I felt the driver side wheel rub on something. When I parked the car and did a visual inspection, I noticed the driver side sway bar had some rub marks..any idea what would cause this? First time this has happened to the car. suspension setup is H&R sport cup kit, Kosei K1's w/ 235/40/17 and H&R swaybars and TMS adjustable links.

I have a thought on this, but first tell me how much clearance there is when it is just sitting on a flat surface.

No, I'm asking about your rubbing problem. So between the wheel and the sway bar. How much clearance as it sits on a flat surface ?

If you can see it without the ramps or just stick your finger up there, that would be best. I fear that ramps or jacking might change things, that's why I suggested a flat surface. But do what's best/safest for you.
