rolling fenders on this car is a pain. the area inside the fender to be rolled has crap inside that needs to be heated and scraped out before it can be rolled. this is because if you roll it hard enough the glue/ rubber crap thats in there will be pushing into your fender and could actually leave a visible line/crease on the outside of the fender.
that is why i didnt have my fenders rolled. if you are rubbing hard like i was, and want to gain as much room as you can, you should have the inside of your fenders shaved.

Yes. Pretty much exactly the same thing happens as with the stock suspension. I'm really starting to wonder if it really is the tires rubbing or not. But I can't think of it being anything else. I just make sure I slow down for dips that I am aware of.

it could be you bottoming out on the jack points? ... maybe check the jack points to see if there's marks in them.

Can you put your stock wheels and tires back on and go for a test drive?

Yeah buddy you are having the EXACT same problem I am having. I would like to roll/shave my fenders but am having trouble finding a reputable shop that is willing to do it. If I lived in SoCal I probably would have gotten it done already with no problems.

Nah..doubt it 99% that it is NOT the jack points. You can actually feel inside the wheel well where the fender is and come out with rubber scraps on your finger-tips.

After my KW suspension was installed I had to put the stockers back on due to unrelated issues with my aftermarket wheels. Absolutely NO RUBBING...go figure....
