    Ok bear with me guys as I may have a few problems with my car and need some advice on how to fix them

    I had my car lowered on eibach pro springs with standard shocks and all was ok, I then had a supersprint cat back exhaust fitted it took a bit of bodging but now fits in to place I then broke my hand and was unable to drive my car, Today I have had my cast removed and need to sort the car out.

    The main problem I have is that there is something rubbing towards the rear of the car I think it could be the ARB rubbing of the camshaft and will need replacing to the whiteline ARB I have heard of, or the bolts from the driveshaft to the diff could have came loose and need tightened just wanted anybody thoughts to what they think the problem is also the rubbing sound increases when going faster

    Cheerz in advance!

    What the hell is the above supposed to mean? Camshaft??

    Presuming you mean driveshaft....

    The transfer box is at the front, not the back, the back is the diff.

    Where is the noise?

    Not wishing to be nasty in any way, but start again (the post I mean).

    Totally with Welly here this thread don't make a lot of sense at all.

    And when have you ever heard of the bolts coming loose on anything when a car has not been used!! Very Random.

    If this was me i would be looking at the bodged exhaust!!

    It will be the propshaft rubbing on the exhaust I would imagine... I had this when I first did 3" system... was ok when I drove the car back home from the unit but obviously after some heat cycling it settled and the noise was like a screech...

    You will be able to see on the prop where its rubbing as it should have some nice witness marks by now..

    Yeah is 3" and if it is rubbing on the prop i'll just have to have it cut down and welded back so it fits better!
