Default Help with Audi A3 8l after lowering on coilovers

Hi everyone,

Iv got a A3 8l 1999 and Im having abit of trouble figuring something out... I lowered my coilover nearly all the way down yesterday and since iv had a horrible noise coming from it when i drive... I spotted someone with a lowered mk4 golf and he said he had to cut the anti roll bar because the differential and the chasis were rubbing against each other... This has confused me alot and dont really want to do that.

What has everyone else done to fix this?

Thanks

Hi mate apparantly its the driveshaft and the anti roll bar scraping, its coming from the front drivers side. They are jom coilovers, iv got 17" alloys with adaptors on, i got my friend to put them on for me who works in a garage but the tracking is getting done at the end of next week. Would these work to stop it scraping?
