I have a similar setup with 15x 7 wheels with 235/60-15 tires and Hotchkis 2” drop springs. I had rubbing problems also till I put the 15 x 7 wheels with 4 backspace on. What is your backspace, maybe your wheels are too far towards the outer fenders? I have a 67 and I heard that 69s have even more room in the wheel wells. Check your backspace.

I agree with Brian on the backspacing. I also would consider changing tire size.

Hmmmm.... 2 inch drop spindles don't work very well on these cars
