Re: hey

Check it's not rubbing on the brake hose also check you haven't accidentally hit the brake disc heat shield

If you have a steelie on 1 side - you should on the other too!

Saves stressing the differential out due to 2 different tyre sizes

With the car on the ground - put full lock on - and run your hand around the tyre on the inside to feel if anything is remotly close to it
Then again with lock the other side and again, something will be rubbing

My bet too is the flexi hose, as its knocked by accident and swings from its mounting
