    So yesterday i replaced front struts from kyb, moog control arms, moog sway bar links, outer tie rods. Today i put on the wheels and it was fine until i turned my wheel. The ball joint is pushing against brake dust and making scraping noise on both sides. Any one used moog control arms before? I didnt have time to jack up the car and check it further.

    Grab the shield and bend it slightly to move it away from the rotor.

    there is no space as the ball joint is right behind it. I am assuming the ball joint is too big at this point. When i am going straight its fine but as soon as i turn, it scrapes the back of the rotor on both sides
