When the 20" rims were placed on, there may have been some adjustments or replacements to the original suspension geometry. Have someone that knows the stock set ups and see if he can see what is out of adjustment or replaced with after-market parts. Sorry, but I'm not a fan of 20" or bigger rims on cars not designed for them. Good decision. It mat be a suspension spring, or coil-over shocks that is moving. Hard to tell over the internet.
