Help! Rear end bottoming out destroying fender and tire
Need advice please.
1967 restomod, not much original.
When I hit a dip in the road just right, my right rear tire hits the front top of the fender.
This weekend it was so bad it ripped off the wheel well stainless trim, bent out the fender lip and made a deep gouge the tire (ruined it).
I have rear leaf springs and some type of gas shocks. Tires 275/40/17 and have plenty of top and side clearance at rest. It only happens on the one side even though both sides like fairly identical.
How do I fix?
Narrower tire (the current 275 does not seem to stick out too far and has plenty of clearance above)?
Is there some kind of limiting block to prevent bottoming out?
Any help appreciated.
I am unable to upload pictures, not sure if due to my posting status.
