    Default Suspension spring pan rubbing on inner arch

    Hi I was wondering if anyone could help, I've had my 1.9CDTI SXI about 18 months now and apart from an alternator had no problems. Then today on the way home I noticed a twanging noise like plastic flicking over metal when going over rough road with lock on. Investigated further to find the right hand front spring pan rubbing on the inner arch when on full right lock can upload photos tomorrow. The left hand side when on full lock still has 10mm clearance. Can't understand why this is happening, checked all suspension bushes and ride heights there all fine. Thought maybe the spring is going but jacked it up and the springs seem quite new. Can't understand the difference unless spring has gone before and damaged the spring pan. Any ideas?
