youll need to either extend your panhard or take off the panhard and run either a wishbone or ybone

YEAH THAT WAS WHAT I THOUGHT. CAUSE THAT IS THE REAR QUARTER PANEL. IF YOUR TIRES HIT THE FRONT OF THE REAR FENDER WELL, THEN YOU GOT A SERIOUS PROBLEM. I MEAN HONESTLY, I HAVE SEEN SOME 64'S JACKED UP AND I DO NOT THINK I HAVE EVER SEEN ONE HIT THE FRONT OF THE REAR WHEEL WELL. I GOTTA SEE SOME PICTRUES. BUT THE ONLY THING IT COULD BE WOULD BE YOUR TRAILING ARMS. BUT I MEAN I HAVE SEEN 64'S WITH REGULAR TRAILING ARMS NOT HAVE THAT PROBLEM.

hows your frame i had a similar problem on a 63 impala i was restoring and the frame was weak in the back so it would rub on the quater on the same side and it was due to the one bar that goes from the pass side from the rear end up to the frame on the driver side might be same problem
