Power steering...that's like cheating :)
When I installed the fiberglass tub it fit, sort of. That is to say it was a mm off here and there and this small margin made a big difference over time. Just small annoying things but they added up to a lot of frustration over the years. What was cool was having all the components mounted on to the tub, made working under the hood a breeze having everything isolated.
Back to the Canyon...ordered a set of 1 inch bora wheel spacers in anticipation of buying a set of tires soon:
Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac
The tires are a 31.7 inch tire. Hoping the wheel spacer alleviates the rubbing on the sway bar. I don't mind trimming the cardboard stuff inside the wheel well but cutting into the sheet medal isn't something I want to get into. Tell ya what, the engineers at GM screwed up by not making the wheel wells larger so we could fit larger tires...reading threw the forums trying to decide on a tire size is a mess. Some folks say no rubbing (doubt these folks go off road or flex the suspension), others have 3 inch suspension kits and have rubbing issues (I suspect the extra inch of flex adds more to the issue than not), some folks say minor rubbing and they will live with it, etc, etc, etc
Based on nothing more than trying to read between the lines I hope this tire/spacer combo works....fingers crossed!!
This video has me a bit nervous....hoping it was a one off issue. I will wait until the spacers show up before buying the tires.
