Rubbing

You should include if you have stock wheels,,it could very well be after market wheels with the wrong offset and you have to let us know where the wheel is rubbing before we can give you the best advice. Some have to roll their fenders and other could need spacers but I need more detail before i can give you advice.

Yeah, just to add... The springs will have taken a beating if the dampers/shocks were expired !!
Check the upper/lower control arms for play as they can cause this too, maybe a combination of the two !
