Wagon clearance problems

Hi guys, Have a problem thats developed with the wagon. When i get a few people in it, there is a rubbing/grinding noise coming from the gearbox/tailshaft area. Sounds like its scraping under the car! Car is lowered with 2" blocks and kings lows. Havent had this problem before now and its only just developed! whats going on here? Are my leaf springs dying?

Ta

Brent

Re: Wagon clearance problems

ive heard the same about the floor. some people bash the floor up around the transmission tunnel to gain enough clearance.
