So i just got my DGR street kit installed today (which is awesome) and lowered the car about an inch, but now there's a really nasty noise coming from my left wheel well every time i turn left. It sounds like one point on the rim is hitting something else every time it goes around. The tie rod on the right side is bent, is that my problem or is it something bigger?

15mm wrench or socket with a rachet also you have to use those things with rubber gromets that come with your Coilovers

Basically make a bracket to hold your brake line in place to your knuckle.

Sorry but I couldn't let this pass. You installed a relatively expensive suspension sytem and you didn't fix a very basic, inexpensive, but critical steering and handling component at the same time? There are priorities and a tie rod....especially a knowingly damaged one.....should be at the top of the list!! How do you expect to properly align that nice new suspension?

$30 tie rod>$999 coilover kit. That suspension isn't going to help when his wheels are going to do this \ / [wrenchin]
