I had to replace the right lower control arm on the Legacy OBW cause the old one was rusted through. I got a used one from a junkyard($25.00 what a deal) and had the local shop put the thing in. I pulled the car out of his shop down a small grade to a stop and turned right. The tire rubbed the mud guard, we took the car back in and loosened the arm back up and using the slotted holes in the rear mount moved it forward. Tried it again ,no more noise. OK. Girlfriend is now saying it is rubbing again, not nearly as bad as before but every now and then it happens.
What am I doing wrong????
We measured the distance between the tire and well on both sides and it seems to be the same. Could the junkyard arm be bent just enough that there is a difference? The car steers real nice and is not wearing the tire, yet.
Thanks in advance all, Mark
