Need a diagram for front strut mount hardware on 98 gti vr6

Can't figure out the layout on this, having issues with tire rubbing on strut, think it is coming from the mounts being improperly installed. can anyone shed some light on this for me?

    What was done to the vehicle to cause the tires to rub on the struts?

    Did you lower the vehicle? Possible Camber issue?

Might consider in lifting the front end and securing on jack stands. Then check your ball joints, tie rod ends and other related steering components. May also want to check your bushing in your control arms, if present.
May also want to check your strut mounts.

Bad motor mounts will not usually cause the kind of noise you describe they will cause more vibration to be felt at all times.

Sometimes the brake rotor dust cover plate can rub against the rotor and make a grinding/scraping sound. Raise the car, remove the wheel, and check the clearance between the dust cover and the rotor.

If your shocks/struts are bad the tire could be rubbing against the strut. Check the strut.

Tire size change

Yes you can - they're very close to the rolling diameter of the stock size (at an indicated 60mph, you'll be going something like 60.3mph). This will also keep your odometer within calibration.

I've been running that size on my A4 for several months now (I also had the same OEM tire size as you), and everything is perfect.
