What would cause the front wheels to rub on the front fender. Happened after 2 days being parked. Rear wheels ok, just the front is low.

    Are the tires stock size? A spring might have broken, but that would affect only one side. Does it have any kind of automatic ride control?

    Regardless, it should be inspected by a good mechanic. If the tires are rubbing you'll need to have it towed (with either a dolly or on a flatbed) to the shop.

    I'd also look at the inflation pressure.

    On every vehicle sold in the US, there is a sticker - the vehicle tire placard - which will list the original tire size and the specified inflation pressure for that size. Any vehicle produced after 2008, the placard will be on the driver's doorframe.
  • The tires are correct size and so was the pressure. Found that the right air shock bladder had ruptured causing the front end to drop. I may replace the air shocks with struts and shocks like the SC430 has. Thanks for your input.
