control arms

I have been search'n for hi clearance front lower control arms for my tj . I've found some for the jk's but none for the tj does anyone know where i can find these of does anyone make them.... here is a link for the JK ones i've found.
Synergy Suspension*::*Synergy Suspension Jeep JK High Clearance Front Lower Control Arms (Pair) I'm running 33's on stock wheels and they will rub if i crank the steering to far I'd like to eliminate that & i thought bent lower control arms would stop the rubbing.
thank

there is a bolt that you can get washers to make room: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/rubbing-42070.html

Or save your money for new rims with a different offset that would also eliminate your rubbing.

Possible Solutions:
1. Buy new control arms = $1000 for a good set (Clayton Off-Road, Rokmen)
2. Buy wheels with less backspacing = $200-500
3. Buy wheel spacers to get less backspacing = $200
4. Buy grade 5 washers at the local hardware store for the steering stops = $1.50

My tires already stick way out, I don't really want to make the tires stick out more with a wheel that has more BS.

If you are rubbing they can't be sticking out too much unless you are running a super wide tire, unless you are trying to run a 12.50 and still shove them in past your fenders. I run a 12.50 with an after market rim (more backspace) and have no rubbing issues. The tires do stick out about 1-2 inches past my stock fenders but that is pretty normal. Sorry wish I had a better pic of it front on to see how far they stick out.

I'l take a picture for your tomorrow, in the day light. I was adjusting my steering today & noticed about half the tire sticks out. I'm running 33x10.5 on stock five star steelies.

The only high clearance arms I've see are by Rock Krawler and they are only available on their long arm kits.
