they rub on the inner pannel under the bulk head on the front when its in full lock but you can cure this by fitting wheel spacers on you dont have to do a body lift like i am doing i just want to do the lift cos it will look abit better and cure the rubbing and there is more clearance for the wheel and tire to move about with out catching on any thing ... and when i say it rubs its not that bad really . my friend even cured his rubbing by cutting the edges of his tread off on his front tires so it didnt catch on out .. hope this helps with out you needed to no  Very Happy
