Issues with eibach springs

I got eibach pro kit springs and I am having rubbing issues when I turn the steering wheel all the way to the right or left. I have koni yellows installed and I am running 225/40R18 in the front. I am thinking I either need to get the car aligned again or a fender roll.i have attached the alignment specs from when the springs were first put on but they have seemed to settle a bit. Anyone have any recommendations.

What width and offset are the wheels?
Can you see any evidence of rubbing on the strut?

Stock offsets. No rubbing on strut just on the inside and outside fender

Well, at full lock to the left you're probably rubbing the plastic guard that sits over the oil cooler. My tires catch on it when I'm reversing out from time to time. Makes a horrible racket.

Not sure on the other. Maybe the bumper clips?

I have put on Swift springs, and after a month and half, I am rubbing again on minor imperfections on the road and if I have a passenger, rubbing occurs on the smallest imperfection on the road. It seems if I were to raise the front ride height about a 1/2in , all will be well. Anyone else have this issue? Would strut tower spacers or camber plates or a combination of both be a possible resolution to this issue?
