Rotating the tires yesterday and noticed the left front tire had rubbed the paint off of the strut, cleaned it up and painted the spot. Going to the GTG this weekend at Magnaflow so I'll check it out when we get back home. Any fix for this. I did a search but didn't come up with anything. Stock tires and wheels. Maybe take it to the dealer Monday. Just got it back Tues. for an oil leak, they replaced the rear main seal and pan gasket, also the trans. pan gasket.

The first thing to try to resolve this is an alignment to the following specifications:

If that doesn't do the trick, the strut mounts and/or radius rod bushings might be toast. But, try the alignment first.

When you replace the tires, if you keep the stock 17" rims, drop to a 235 width tire (what the 18"ers get/what they get in Oz), and you won't have any rub problems.
