Lowered, stock wheels, rubbing wheel wells.

    New to the tC game, picked up a gently used 2013 w/30k miles.

    PO has placed what looks to be 1-1.5 inch lowering springs on the front and rear.
    Looks good, rides nice, problem is, when hitting any uneven road, small pothole, etc. the wheels are rubbing the splash guards.
    This does not happen on even bumps, eg speed bump.

    To solve this problem im thinking a stiffer swaybar/endlinks.
    If anyone has a better idea I'm open to hear it, if not; is the eibach sway bar a good choice and who makes stiff endlinks?

    Also, i was under the impression that the rigidity of the sway bar was to maintain level wheels on an uneven road. Thus, if i'm having rubbing on uneven road, a more rigid bar should transfer some of the stress to the other spring/strut should it not?
