Default Caster arm rubbing on inner wheel

Hello guys, I have an issue with my 98 Ls400. It is all stock and I am having issues withe the driver side front caster arm rubbing against the inner stock wheel when the steering wheel is locked all the way to the right. Here are pictures of the caster arm rubbing on the inner wheel when full locked. It rubs and I can hear metal grinding against each other when I make a full right lock into a parking spot. Even grind my clip on balance weights as well. I had the caster arm bushing couple years ago, no issues.... Anyone have this issue? Any solutions?

Get your car aligned by a competent shop, it should not have that much wheel angle at full lock.
