I recently bought a Mk2 fiesta. I bought some lowering xr2 springs, when I have 1 person in the back, the wheel rubs on the arch (left side). Have I bought the wrong springs or how can I prevent this?

Have something to contribute?

Have you replaced the dampeners and the bushes. Is this only on the left side of the car?

Replace the lowering springs with the original springs that should sort the problem out
