hey guys i just recently installed my coilovers on my car, the only problem is that the front right rim and tire rubs against the coilover. The front left appears to have plenty of space. the ball joint and controll arms are also brand new. what could be causeing this ???

Loosen the top bolt holding the strut to the spindle, it pivots on the lower bolt. Note: this changes geometry, you can't just do this and hope things wort out. You should go for an alignment or at least check the camber.
