Tire rubbing?

So when I turn sharp to the left, it kinda sounds like the tire rubs. But when I turn sharp to the right I don't get that noise. Where should I start looking?

That's common. It's rubbing on your control arm. Common to be one sided. You can add washers to the stop. It looks like a bolt Sticking out of the inside front of the caliper area. Not on the caliper though. On the axle. I think. It's late. It's obvious if your Looking there for it.

Ok I'm bored here is pics.

Well now there's two. I sent in pm to OP. I took a pick of drivers side stop. If your rubbing drivers side control arm add washers to the passenger side stop. If your overkill and rubbing both sides do both. Me I'm under kill. It's parking lot crazy stuff that gets mine. Rarely happens. I added no washers. I have a 3" and 32" tires. I will do it someday I got OCD. Even though it happens like once a year. Did it recently busting a u turn on closed road hence the shiny metal.
