OP, what springs do you have installed in the car?
I can't believe I didn't notice this previously, when we discussed.
You are definitely making some valid points, BUT....what I also noticed immediately, after seeing your pics again - is the springs you have seem to be substantially larger (OD) compared to the OEM springs, or some other aftermarket pieces.
Due to your situation being very, very uncommon for me and my dealings, I decided to look into that further. This is what I found thanks to Google.
BMR vs OEM:
Vogtland vs OEM:
I don't want to pass the blame off on another company, but I think it is a compounding situation. With an OEM spring, BMR, or any other spring that closely resembles the OEM outer diameter, I imagine that this issue would not be present. I could be wrong, but as I stated earlier....this is very uncommon. I can also state that I rarely ever speak with customers who have these springs (Vogtland)
