Rear tracbar issue

I am having rubbing issues between the rear tracbar and the unibody, it started several days ago and I don't know why.
Anyone had any similar issues?

No but mine just started making popping noises again and the bushing has gone bad on the passenger side. Looks like the problems with the Rusty's track bar are surfacing.

I installed rustys adjustable upper control arms like a month ago, so I don't think that the UCA are the issue

Bushing for the track bar, not the UCA. Sorry I should have made that clearer.

Lifted or not something is off. The passenger rear is pushed back relative to the driver rear. Either the entire axle or the trackbar mounts.

OP-
what does the bushing on the passenger side look like as well as that end of the trackbar in general?

Looks like you need to shorten the UCA's and/or bend that metal out of the way. You've pushed the axle too far back.

Sounds like the cause of the issue.

I will try and bend were the tracbar is hitting, because if I return the UCA to stock length, the driveshaft will start vibrating around 140 km/h.
