Hi, my rear tire is currently rubbing against my rear trailing arm. I hit a curb and bent it but after replacing with new one it is still rubbing. It appears the stabilizer bar or inner tie rod may also be bent. Any idea on why it would be rubbing?

Hello, I'm Danny.

What we usually ask for you to do is by using your cell phone can you take a picture of the damage and upload the photo here? I've attached a picture below of the rear suspension system for your car. Get back to me when you can. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.

Here's the picture of my tire rubbing the trailing arm and the 2nd pic is what I believe is a bent stabilizer bar.

Hello again,

From the picture you provided I've circled in red what seems to be the problem. That stabilizer bar needs to be more straight. If the bar is straight it would kick the bottom out and provide more clearance. Let me know if you have any other questions on this issue. Hope this helps and thanks again for using 2CarPros.
