    When I hit a big bump and my shocks extend after it, I can hear a sound that almost sounds like tires rubbing, but thats not it, sounds like its coming from the poly bushings...also I think I need to trim the area around my shock mounts in the front, there is not much clearance for my RS9000s. Could the shocks binding be causing this problem?

    My front end makes noise sometimes, if you can't pin point it just keep wheeling and turn up the stereo! You'll know when it breaks.
