Wheel Rub and A/C Dryer

Hi all,

Was hoping to probe your expertise with two questions. I am having trouble with my wheels rubbing the top of my wheel wells when I go over large bumps. I believe it's just in the front tires. I don't really have much experience with suspension work so I am wondering:

1. Do you think the rubbing at the top of the wheel well is from worn out struts and is it a feasible job for a novice or best left to a mechanic?

My next question deals with my A/C system. I've already replaced the compressor, but I'm pretty confident I have a bad expansion valve. That said, I will be replacing the A/C dryer just to ensure everything is sound. I started trying to get it off, but I couldn't reach the bolt closer to the headlight to take it off. It seems like you have to take out the headlight, which from what I've read requires taking off the bumper. So for my next question:

2. What is the best way to remove the A/C dryer?

I appreciate your guys' help!

All Gen. Prelude Service Manuals
^^ this gives you basic instructions.

If you car is lowered or has oversize wheels you're stuck until you change that.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

2 10mm bolts for the bracket, then 17mm wrench for the connectors. Take your bumper off for easier access
