Yes most likely you will rub worse lowered. You could try a different offset wheel and/or a different profile tire (i.e. 295/30 instead of 295/35 if you aren't already on 30), or you could add negative camber.

Thanx. Yeah ive got 295/30. Camber is as much as i can go. Do you think its worth just doing the springs in the front because thats where the wheel gap is the rear sits not to bad

No. Lowering just the front will throw off your handling in a bad way, and probably eff up your ABS/DSC as well. With the right offsets you can definitely run 295/30 without rubbing, just find different wheels if it rubs bad.
