Creaking during turning after coilovers?

I have some bad creaking, not like a rocking chair creak, more like grinding feeling after putting on my coils. I'm lowered on all 4 corners to about an inch of tire clearance from the body. I'm on 17x9 + 35s, w/ 255/40s.
Only happens when turning.

My first indication is that the tires are too wide and I'm rubbing against the perch, however, it just started to do this after the coils.. and I've had the tires on with no problem with oem.. - and sounded even worse in the rain (which makes me think it's not rub...).

Anyone have any sort of idea?

Tein Street Basis, -0.1 deg camber on the fronts. Stock everything else.

It is common for coil overs to groan on the front when turning. You probably need thrust bearings.

Also, check to see if your end links are hitting the control arm.

Before buying anything the first thing I would do is check with the car settled on the ground that you're not hitting anything with the wheel in full lock in each direction.

Only -.1 camber? Are you not poking? I would think it is rubbing, how low are you?

No rub or grind when parked and moving wheel. Clears the perches with no problem. Problem exists when driving and turning.

Triple post, but also doesn't do it low speeds when turning. 10-15+.

It's the springs for sure, thrust bearings will fix the issue.
