    Vehicle : Astra GTC VXR

    Trim : VXR

    Engine : 2.0t

    Year : 2013

    Default Rubbing noise on full lock.

    Finished the suspension off yesterday but have noticed that when on full lock to go right theres a rubbing noise.
    Cars got 19" snowies and PI 45mm lowering springs with standard shockers.
    Doesn't seem to do it on full lock left and didn't seem to do it with the coilovers on.
    Checked to see if the spring seat might have been the cause but looks like its nowhere near the wheel or tyre.

    Any thoughts people

    Right, had a look at work tonight and it seems the wheel and tyre are rubbing on the inner arch on full lock.
    Has anyone else had a problem like this as speaking to Vauxhall the car will fail its MOT because of it. Just seems silly to have Vectra wheels on a Vectra and for them to catch on bodywork.
    Was thinking to cure it to put some spacers on (say 6mm).

    It would'nt rub if you did'nt have aftermarket springs on it there designed to run on springs that come fitted to the car. Not much point talking to vauxhall as you have modified it.

    Only speaking to Vauxhall due to having a free MOT with them.
    There is alot of people on here that have 19" wheels or bigger and have lowered their cars but they don't seem to have any problems.

    Ah right got you now. A 45mm drop and running 19's will be tight. Might be worth checking the wheel arch liners are secure and tightly fitted.

    Can't do that, already on 35 profile. When i got to buy new tyres i think i'll see if i can get 225's instead of 235's.

    In the meantime i've just went and bought some 5mm spacers from Halfords as it does only seem to rub on extreme lock.

    UPDATE:

    Fitted the 5mm spacers tonight and they seemed to have done the trick.
    Once christmas and new year is out the way i might go and buy some 6mm ones to replace the 5mm ones on the front (to be on the safe side) and bung the 5's on the back.
