grind in tight turns

just got my '06 LJ lifted with a 2" budget spacer lift and new 33" tires. drives great, but making hard turns(like into a parking space) i hear front end grinding. anything that would be obvious? is this something normal that i need to get over and just make wider turns or something i should be figure out immediately.
grinding cant be good right?

Do you have 4WD engaged by any chance? It's not meant to be used on dry pavement.

Is it grinding or rubbing ?
Look at your lower arms and see if your new tires are hiting at full lock

X2 on probably the wider tires rubbing on something at full lock. You can adjust your steering locks out a little if that turns out to be the problem.

My money is on the tires as well. I have a 2.5 lift and 35's. Full turn, to the stop and the tires will rub. Not an issue as I rarely turn the wheel to the stops in either direction when driving. I usually only notice it when backing into my garage.
