Check to see if your shocks are even blown. If you don't want to take them off the car, then push down on the corner (wherever you suspect a blown shock is) up and down up and down. It should be somewhat stiff (not completely all the way stiff but stiff to some degree, just use best judgement). If its bouncing up and down like a Cadillac then most likely its blown because its boucing completely on the spring with the shock not helping absorbing.

I know you would rather not replace shocks if it isn't going to fix the problem... But if they are blown you need to replace them regardless if it fixes that particular problem you have with the arm hitting the wheel well. But I am betting that the problem lies there, blown shocks.

Furthermore, I do not suggest just getting replacement stock shocks for your blown stock shocks. That would be stupid, your shit would just blow in some days again and you would be in the same boat minus the bread you shelled out for the shocks. I know it sound appealling because they are cheaper than aftermarket but it'll be a temporary fix. VERY temporary.
I know i figured it out. But hank you very much for the kind informative response rather than these other assholes. But yeah. Im working out the whole shock thing. I have realizes im going to have to call koni and get some yellows re valved. But thanks again.

Thats your best bet, and the best choice of shocks for sure. Good luck to you.
