Default Tein Springs Contact Passenger Side

Hi everyone-
My 2003 base-model PT w/ manual trans recently got a Tein Spring set and
generic Ebay shock and strut set all around. Car has 133K on it. A mechanic friend installed these during a major service done at the same time.
The passenger-side front spring rubbed on the motor-mount bulge (?) in the wheelhouse upon sharp turns (almost full lock) to left or right. It appears this bulge interferes slightly with a section of the coil. Not such a big deal then, but now after a couple thousand miles it happens more frequently, more noisily,
yada. I reckon this is a case of the springs settling and now having more opportunity to foul the 'bulge'. I like the stance...
Car has 17" ASA wheels and 235/45ZR 17 tires.
