Question HELP - rubbing noise

So i put on my ralleys last night and now i have a rubbing noise when turning left coming from the right front. It wasn't there before the wheel swap and it's not a tire rub. Any ideas???

I did pull the rf drum and check the shoes before bolting the wheel on.

Help?

Re: HELP - rubbing noise

lmao! That's my noise! I replaced the entire front suspension, a-arms, brakes, bearings, everything, and came out of it with that same noise. A metalic scraping, happens with virtually any amount of left turn. Seems loudest when going slow and easy, but perhaps that is the lack of other noises?

I've checked the wheel bearings 3 times...

Re: HELP - rubbing noise

I repacked my bearings - no difference. Went on a 50mile run then pulled the wheels and can't find any witness marks.

no dust shield on the Willwoods, no witness marks that I can find. New bearings and races...

Re: HELP - rubbing noise

Jim check the back of the rotor and a-arm clearance iv'e seen this happen before and when it does happen it's often overlooked because it shouldn't happen.

Re: HELP - rubbing noise

Once I had a rubbing noise and found out that the lugnuts on my wheels were hand tight... Just a thought. Do you torque your wheels after everytime you take them off?

The only Mustang I'd ever own is a Fender.

Re: HELP - rubbing noise

Have you tried raising that wheel off the ground with a jack supporting the lower control arm and spinning the wheel while gradually turning the steering wheel?

Re: HELP - rubbing noise

Todd and Jim,

Check the rear bottom fender bolt that you see in the wheel well. Also if you have the wheel well trim, check that out too Just look for shinny spots on the bolts and trim .

Re: HELP - rubbing noise

Damn!

Found mine. The top of the caliper mounting bracket, or the bolt head, is rubbing on the backside of the disc. BOTH SIDES.

Wonder if this is worth a new thread? Or just a call to Wilwood?

The Wilwood brackets come with a selection of shims and spacers so you can use them with either drum or disc spindles. I "KNOW" I used the right spacers, checked the whole stack with a dial caliper, compared to the parts list, and sorted according to which ones read thicker or thinner...

Since they are fixed calipers, I'll probably have to pull everything off, reshim the top for clearance, reshim the bottom to get the bracket straight, then reshim the caliper to the bracket to center it on the rotor.

Or I could just ignore it. At least I know it's not something really bad, like wheel bearings grinding themselves to dust.

Re: HELP - rubbing noise

found mine also - it was actually rubbing in the RR on the back side of the tire against the fender/trunk wall. I am currently using 15x7 ralleys (FW) w/ 255/60-15's, but am switching to 15x8's using 255/60-15, would going with 4.75bs take care of this problem?
