    Hi all,

    My rear right drive shaft (half shaft) rubs against the helper spring on the coilover on my 97' MK1 1.8 MX5. It doesn't do this on the other side. I have removed the helper springs for now but would rather know why this is happening so I can put the helper springs back in.

    The rear subframe seems to be normal and everything seems symmetrical by eye. The only thing I can think of is that the bushings are swollen and have slightly moved the lower arm or something.

    If anyone has any experience of this, please let me know!
