Yeah that pic was taken when it was all being fitted, I just put new standard rubbers in mine when I had everything apart. Nothing is rubbing and it's six months down the line now. That plastic sleeve is there to stop the spring going through your tyre if it should break. If your springs are rubbing on the cup welded to the wishbone, I can't see how they are the right ones. There is plenty of room on mine and they're pretty much impossible to fit wrong, so surely they have to be too big.
