Bc racing br coilover

I have installed bc br coilover. But there are a little metal sound from the front . Is this normal?
By the way the coilover seems good and stiff. I have it on 20 setting. and drop around half finger in front. I will test longer to see if I will rub with my front wheels first. it's good for the price

Your wheel is hitting your strut! You need spacers.

Then you need wheels with less offset. But if you get a 10mm HUBCENTRIC spacer I doubt you could feel the difference.
