Default Tire rub on spring perch

My daughter hit one of those evil moving curbs in her 2005 neon and blew out the front drivers side strut, bent the rim and put a hole in the tire. After I changed the tire for her I noticed the tire was hitting the spring perch. So I had the car towed home. I have now changed struts and mounts but the tire still rubs. Any ideas on what else could be wrong?
Cars a 2005 sxt with 1.5" lowering springs, 17x7.5 wheels and 205/50/17 tires. Tire never rubbed before hitting the curb.

Take it and get the alignment checked. That will tell you.
