It looks like your coil is contacting your CV. I know of one case where someone was experiencing the same type of thing and resorted to relocating the bottom mount. BUMP for you.

From the look of the rub marks on the picture, the cv shaft hit the coil on your coilovers. I have heard of that happening before but have never seen pictures. I havent had that problem before, and I have beat the hell out of my saws...... I think something similar had happened with the kings and the PC lift but was easily fixed....

with much thanks to a friend I figured out what the problem was. theres a spacer that is by the lower bolt that pushes the coil away from the cv's. unfortunately when my coils were installed the spacer was put on the other side of the coil, pushing my coils into my cv's. I just undid the lower bolt, flipped the spacer to the correct side and all is well.

just thought i'd share if anyone encounters the same problem ;)
