Steering "Bump stop"?

OK, this might be a stupid question, but I just got my jeep lifted a couple weeks ago. 3.5" Rancho sport lift running 285/745/17 Nitto Trail Grapplers on 17x9 KMX XD125's (wouldn't recommend the rims, but that's what I got). Took it out last weekend and tried it out. I knew I was rubbing a little while we were out, but was too busy to check it out. When I got home and was cleaning up the Jeep, I noticed the driver's side tire had rubbed the control arm, due to loss of paint on the control arm. The other side was fine. I had disconnected the stabilizer, and I can't get it to rub when the stabilizers are connected (on level ground). I was wondering if there is a way to limit the amount it turns to the left. I am not really concerned beacause I don't intend to wheel it like I did on a regular basis, but it will be taken out from time to time, and it's gonna be pretty rough when I do. I think I can live with it the way it is, but just wondering if there is an easy fix.

Very easy fix. Look for the bolt with a nut attached to it in your knuckle. That is your steer stop. Unbolt it. Don't worry the nut is welded to the bolt won't move. Then put one skinny washer behind it and that's it. It will limit the turn. If so add thicker one if needed.

larjeep YER DA MAN! I figured this had to be a common deal with an easy fix, but I've said it before and I'll say it again "I'm not a smart man".
