i have the eibach prokit, had it for about 7k miles and when im driving hard on some corners the tire rubs on the front drivers side... dosnt happen everytime but its kinda annoying... i only have the stock 17s and 215/45 gforce sport tires on... is this normal or could the shock be bad?

How bad is the rub? Is it from suspension loading or from the wheel being turned too much (outside the fender). I've got a KW coilover kit and the tires sit right on the fender and I only rub a little bit on the driver's front during an autocross. I had the KW springs and shocks before with a 1.8 inch drop and did not rub at all. Makes me wonder if something's off. How much do you weigh?

Is your front swaybar hooked up ok? No broken endlinks or worn bushings? 220 won't make the front rub on that drop. If you were over 300 pounds I'd say maybe, lol.
