Rubbing The Guard

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I own an HCR32 gtst and I'm having an issue.

Car has had a distinct creek In the front right of the car when hitting bumps and going up driveways. The noise is comming from the top of the wheel guard and just recently has been causing the guard to scrape on the wheel when hitting bumps or turning left at more then about 30km/h.

I have checked all the bushes and they are fine as the person I bought the car off had replaced them about 6 months ago.

Can anyone steer me In the right direction on what to check or look for. I have searched the forums and most of Everyones problems are bush and spring related. Both of these are less then 12 months old on the car so I'm looking for other options.

is the car lowered ??

if its a tire scrub go for a drive, make it scrub and then check on the outside of the guard (lip) where its scrubbing as there should be black rubber dirt

if its scrub on the lip then you may have to get it rolled (the lip is rolled straight or as close to straight as possible giving you more clearance)

When i lowered mine it would scrub on the rears and front when going over bumps or cornering at over about 30 so i blamed the tire joint and they rolled the guards for free and no more scrub :)

Yes the car has been lowered. It's scrubbing on the outide of the tyre due to the camber. Guards are not rolled but the front left tyre does not rub at all. So there must be something else that is causing the right side to sag a little more.

    • TCU is enroute, should be here on Monday. Have just paid for a transmission locally, they've got to pull it out of the car and should be with me on Friday. Just getting little bits and pieces I need for wiring. Thinking about using a small bulkhead connector to run the transmission wiring through the tunnel as the trans plug is quite big.  So all going well i should have the box dummy fitted up next weekend and start wiring.
    • sure, just PM me your email....
    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
