I just did a two inch lift install on my 2002 wrangler, now when I turn the wheel all the way to the left,,,the right inner wheel hits the steering sway bar...any ideas on how to fix this, I cant seem to find an adjustable steering stop anywhere???....thanx Andy

tires that stick out further will also cure your problem.

It could be that just the sway bar has moved over a bit.Turn your wheels to the other side and see how much clearance you have over there if it is more than an inch and it is hitting on the other side take a rubber mallet or a dead blow hammer and hit the sway bar to knock in back over to the side with the most clearance and see if that helps.
