You lowered guys rub the mud guards? Solutions?

You may know I recently lowered the mustang on h&r super sports, only the bottom isolator, and steeda x2 ball joints. I find I don't scrape that often but u-turns are damn near impossible lol. The tire rubs the mud guards inside the fender. Any solutions to this problem?

Rack limiter would be the easiest solution, well removing the guards would be the "easiest" but that's not recommended on a street car.

Ford Mustang Steering Rack Limiter N804842S (79-04 All) - Free Shipping

If you're moving slow (which I would imagine you are doing making a u-turn) it won't hurt anything. I've been rubbing mine as well as the swaybar at full lock on my 03 for years now and it hasn't hurt anything.

Narrower tires will clear but I honestly don't think it's a big enough concern to run out and buy new tires.

I tore off my mudguards already you can build little shields for the holes if you don't mind. I haven't had any issues with water into my intake. Daily driven car aswell

I haven't done anything to mine yet, but I've heard that you can just heat up the plastic and push it in

This is what Ive heard too. Shouldnt be too bad as DYI since its not an area anyone will see really, especially being low.
