i noticed this the other day and im not sure whats going on here but would like some inputs.. i have lowered my car with Eibachs, and have 19x8.5 volk gt7 with 245/25 rubber up front

Under heavy braking there is something going on that shouldnt be there. A strange noise can be heard .. sounds something like a mixture of rubbing, grinding, and/or a spring going "boing!" (lol not sure how to explain that sound).

Also i can feel this through the brake pedal.

I played in the car for a few minutes to dissect the problem. It appears to only happen when the front suspension gets compressed during braking..I tried braking hard through left and right turns and it does it still. but so if i am going pretty slow and hit the brakes, stopping the car immediately, the sound is not there.

I am not sure if it is the cold weather doing this, something has come loose, something is rubbing, or what.

i am *hoping* this is tire rubbing something.

please help!
