Last couple of weeks I have found rubber on the mount and the left rear z-link bar? I don't know what I can do to remedy this. Has anyone run across this? running a DW8 4-bar, z-link right. Thanks.

Yeah I can not see any marks on the tire either but am concerned to say the least. It sure does not seem like moving the bird cage towards the center of the car woul be the right thing to do. In fact I am not sure what the correct location of the birdcage should be. I just figured if it allows the rear end to move left in the chassis it is good enough. But I am guessing the tire hitting the bar and mount has to be either pushing the rear end over and maybe tightening the car in the center of the corner creating a minor push. Is that possible?
