    Hi all, Any time I full-lock the wheel left and accelerate, I can hear a rubbing noise from the right wheel. This doesn't happen whilst coasting or when turning right. Does this sound like a bad wheel bearing?

    Hi all. When hitting bumps at a high speed my rear tyres clip and rub the arches in my E92 330D. Currently the car has been lowered on new H&R springs which drop the rear by 25mm.
