Afternoon all!

I have recently stuck a staggered set of D90's on my 1987 944 (with ABS), But it seems the rear passenger side on is rubbing off the wheel arch and not at the top but at a @9 o'Clock angle. This happens if I don't really slow down at speed bumps etc..

The wheels fit fine its just this one side with the issue. When looking at each rear wheel it seems one is more forward than the other?

So, basically... what could this be?

Thanks,

Mark

It's clearly a geometry issue. Has the car had a bump?

Don't know to be honest...

Was thinking the same though, another thing for the list :(

The toe / camber adjustment is out on that side (individually adjustable but effect each other). Be worth getting an all wheel geometry done on it.

Thanks all... Got the geometry completely redone on the car and the toe and camber were out by 2 degrees!

All Good now!
