I'm gonna guess you mean the swing-link...which by doing so pushed the rear axle down...which in turn steepened your head angle...which now lets the chain rub on the bottom of the front derailleur cage gate...at least in the small chainring and smaller cogs in the rear. If so, don't worry about it...at least usually. This usually goes away when you sit on the bike...and yes, when the rear suspension fully extends, it rubs again, but when that's happening, you're usually not cranking on the pedals or under a load. If the noise bothers you, put a piece of automotive fuel line on that flat part of the derailleur cage gate. Of course, all this is assuming that your front derailleur is set at the right height. Doing away with the big ring, replacing it with a shorter bash ring, and then lowering your derailleur will also stop this.
If none of this makes sense or helps in any way, do what shiggy suggested...don't do it.
thanks for the reply dudes i really appriciate it
