I can't see how it isn't from the wheel, but also can't see how it is, hahaha. Either way, I'm going to bend the strap back some this weekend and wrap some additional rubber hose around the cable to prevent further issues down the road.
Huh. Have you been able to inspect it fully loaded? Maybe under full loading the lowering brought the cable against the bracket or something. I didn't notice any wear on mine, but I'm bone stock as far as suspension is concerned.

Good to know.
