that's not a suspension problem, you got the wrong offset on your wheels.

and if this were a suspension problem, this would have been in the wrong forum.

I wouldn't get rid of the 17s yet just get rid of your friends who ride in the back. But seriously, if you are sure the wheels are rubbing on inside of the wheel well you might have the wrong wheel offset or your tires might be a little too wide.

Where, exactly, is it hitting? Remove a wheel and look for signs. If it is the shock or the fender lip, the wheel offset is wrong for your car. If it is the splash shield, the springs are too soft.

To cure this you can try replacing the shocks with KYB AGXs set to a high damping rate to control wheel movement.

That's also assuming your suspension bushings are all in good shape, you have functioning bumpstops, and your wheel offset is correct.

4th and 5th gne Maximas have a problem with rear wheel travel once you lower them. they only have about 1.5" of travel back there, and you have to run insane offsets to keep from rubbing the fender lip in the back. part of the big problem is they have a 1" lip on them where the rear bumper meets the sheet metal on the body. that can easily be fixed with a dremel and some touchup paint, and it's pretty obvious where it's rubbing when you pull off a wheel and look around.

like I said, the problem is the WHEELS, you got the wrong OFFSET.

you can't just go buy a set of wheels without considering offset man. It's not that simple.

and like i said, it's not a suspension problem.
