I've just bought a C124 and noticed the osf wing has been pushed out at the arch because the wheels is hitting it, the tyre has been cut and has chunks out of it aswell, what could this be? A probelm with the shock maybe? its on high profile tyres on 15inch standard alloys.

I would jack up and check the lower wishbone rubber mounts.

you need to compress the spring enough to take the strain off the
wishbone to check those bushes properly.

Im going to get it up on ramps at the weekend and have a closer look. Yes brucemillar, its fitted with bilstein suspension, sagging at osf though think it must be the spring. Looks like it was fitted years ago and is now well past it ue by date. Only had the car 22 days and haven't had the time to have an indepth look. Apart from that though, it seems I've picked up a bargain. So far lol
