Default Perrin Front sway bar & perrin solid endlinks hitting tie rod

Hey everybody,

So I have a 04 wrx wagon that has some suspension modifications

Air lift performance digital V2 air ride
sedan control arms
perrin 24mm front sway bar
perrin solid endlinks


recently I have had the issue of my FSB hitting my tie rod.

I was wondering if anyone out here knows of any solutions short of removing the front swaybar.

the sway bar hits the tie rod at the top endlink mounting point.

Perhaps too low?

When you say recently, so it wasn't an issue before? What changed?

It probably is because I'm too low but I'm hoping there's a solution out there for this besides removing the front sway bar. maybe adjustable endlinks?

How much front drop are you running? Based on your photo a shorter/adjustable link would help gain clearence but not heard of this issue when lowered.

I dont have measurements from stock height but I have about half of an inch from wheel lip to fender. So im low but the weird thing is this never happened before. Im in the process of replacing the steering rack but it has minimal play in it.

If the drop worked before you did the steering rack install then there's something else going on.

Havent done it yet, but I agree. Its only half an inch lower then when I was on coils so maybe something shifted.

At that height that sway bar is practically useless, remove it along with the end links and sell them to me !
