Hi All,

I have an issue that i cant seem to get my head around.
The front tyres rub against the body wheel arches when the steering is used or if the suspension travels.
I have gone back through the instructions several times to see if i had put something together wrong, but it all appears to be correct.
Looking at the pictures on here, the gap between the top of the tyre and the wheel arch seems to be greater than that on mine, but cant see anyway of adjusting the height.
Its a shame as it is a brilliant truck and want to use it, but everytime i turn it makes a horrendous noise.

Any help would be appreciated or has anyone else had this problem? If so what have you done to rectify it?

Thanks
Chris (Newbie)

Hi Chris, BigGrin

Firstly welcome to the forum. Cool

Now I have not built the Hummer, but I`ve noticed looking at the official build that the top of the front shocks are mounted through a specific hole in the carrier. It says to mount them through the middle hole (of three) and I was wondering if you may have inadvertently used the inner holes, as this could alter the ride height.

You can find the official build here:

Hope this helps.
