Not sure about the fender rub. I though that was being diagnosed/debated in another thread?
And I think it’s mentioned in this thread…the goal is usually not to lower the cars.
More often, the goal is to soften the front suspension. Then, if necessary, use the torsion tube adjusters to raise the car back to the proper ride height. The second step depends on how much weight the specific TDr puts over the front suspension. Some will still ride “normal” after the bars are removed. Others will settle down a bit and need to be raised up.
