Front Tire Rubs Hellwig Sway Bar
Tried searching and didn't find anything. Recently installed a Hellwig front sway bar (#7676) on the truck described in my signature. Install was smooth and straight forward, but front left tire rubs on the sway bar when making right turns. I've tried adjusting the sway bar side to side and it makes no difference. I've also searched the web and found no instances of front tire rub with Hellwig sway bars on these trucks.
Any ideas or suggestions?
One thought I had is that the new 6,000 Ford coil springs I installed 2 years ago, with 1" ICON TEI spacers beneath, may have settled a bit. This combined with the adjustable track bar which I used to re-center my axle, may now be pushing the axle too far to the right, allowing the front left tire to contact the sway bar during tight right turns????
