I also have an 07 but passenger rear axle barely rubs the shock right where u adjust the stock shock nothing bad but enough to leave a visible groove i believe only hits when bottom out (little on the heavy side 4seater) dont know what caused it besides sitting a fat guy in the back ..

check the bushings in the rear uprights also. if a cv is going out or the cv cage then your axle can start to "wobble some" and this may cause this issue. dirt on the shocks can also leave a shiney spot on the axle, this happens on short course cars alot, but nothing is touching.
