Well I've been having issues with my ABS and Slip Cont Off light coming on. Before it was only occasionally, then it became more frequent until they were always flashing warnings at me. The only things I had messed with on the car recently were the Greddy BCC on the ECU and the fuel pump. Couldn't figure out how those had anything to do with trac or ABS. Well took off the wheel and confirmed I really need to raise the car up a tad.

Yes, the exact spot it scraped through was on the wiring harness that goes over the fender wheel liner. Luckily it had only managed to chew through the wheel speed sensor wires so far, which was causing the ABS fault. Fixed those wires and adjusted the coilovers a bit so fingers crossed for no more rubbing 馃


Anyone else have a dumb mistake to share?

That was a great find on your part. You'd have not seen it without removing the tire/wheel. Was the driver side wheel well liner ok?
I have rhd so this was driver's side, but the other side was not rubbing at all. I lifted both sides up just to be safe though.

You didn't sense any rubbing when you initially installed the coil-overs?
Nope, no rubbing when first set up. This is about a year later and the rubbing came on more gradually so I think the suspension has settled in since install. I extra tightened the adjustment collars to be safe.

Looks like fortune autos. How you like it in the supra? I find the fa500 pretty comfortable on the is300 I have
I like them. Got a good deal on them during their annual scratch and dent sale. I have them without the swift springs. They are quite firm. It was between these, Feals, and HKS hipermax but ultimately went with the FA because of the modular design and the option of potentially upgrading/adjusting in the future

this is why i always do 2 finger gaps all around, too risky... i had my car 1 finger gap before and hit a really bad bump one night and tore up my brand new fender liners. pissed was an understatement.
That's a good method. Mine were originally less than 1 finger gap, more like a diagonal lol. Now it's a narrow two finger gap. Looks less aggressive but will function much better I'm sure

That's funny because I am running te37 sagas on coilovers. Apparently a common setup!
Two finger gaps between the outer wheel and the fender should be a safe distance to account for bumps. I stiffened up my coilover settings a bit to hoping that might help.

I'm not actually sure how it was rubbing the front of the fender to be honest. It was also rubbing the top but hadn't made it through the liner there yet. I have 245/40/18s which I didn't think were overly large for the fronts. To be fair, I was quite low though. Enough where you wouldn't be able to touch the top of the tire.

Now that I think about it, it was rubbing the front fender on full lock turns like in parking locks. So I鈥檓 not sure if preload would solve that. No choice but to raise it
