Default 94 mustang gt stock tires rubbing swaybar?

I have a 94 mustang gt. I have the stock wheels and tires on the car. They are rubbing the swaybar on turns. Is 225-55-16 the correct tire size for this car? What could be causing this problem?

Tire diameter is fine, so I suspect that something may be bent or damaged. Clearance should not be an issue, so do you know if the car has ever been damaged or maybe struck a curb very hard?

I just bought the car a little while ago not sure about an accident but the front end looks good it only does it on full lock turns but it looks like there is an aftermarket power steering rack in there thats newer.

Gotta be the steering rack. You can purchase rack limiters at Late Model Restoration and install them easily. OR.... just don't turn soo sharp
