    ever since i've had my 98 civic ex 4dr lowered 1.5" with 205/40/17 tires, i'm getting a nasty metallic sounding noise when i turn real hard left or right, regardless of speed. any ideas of what it is? i don't have anywhere to work on my car at the moment, otherwise i'd check it out myself.
    thx

    I got some weird noises when I put on my tokicos but they were due to the coilovers... not sure if you're running springs. :shrug:

    could be your upper ball joint hitting the inside of the fener, or a tire scraping on the fender lip.
