do you guys think 33s will rub with a 2 1/2" spring lift?

With just a 2.5" spring lift and everything else stock, you can run 31's w/out rubbing max. You'll need to trim the fenders a bit, or get new roomier flares, install a 1"BL, or install a 1" shackle lift, rims with proper backspacing, to clear 33's w/out rubbing. It really depends on what you want and where you want to wind up in the end. You could even get tube fenders and that's it, I don't have a spring lift and only a 1"BL, but my tube-fenders give me enough room for 33's. What else do you have besides the spring lift though?

they will rub with the sway bar removed, and without trimming the fender in the back. Mine had 32's with no lift when I got it, and I put 33's on it. I have 2.5 suspension, and 3" body lift with 33's.
wherever you go there you are..........
