33's rubbing,my problem.

Hello everyone!
I currenty have a 3in BB up front and a 2in in the rear that the PO installed. I am about to swap it out for a Savvy 3in. I went wheelin last weekend and my 33's rub my stock fender flare's. I currently have no bumpstop (pretty sure) and no jounce bumper....ALL PO. I really need to get it taken care of. So, is that why my tires rubbed??

I have been thinking about the jounce bumpers and bumpstop's. I know i can get ZJ jounce bumpers, but how do i know if i need a bumstop cup?? Also for the bumpstop's, what about a kit like Rokmen offers thats adjustable?
Variable Height Bump Stop Spacers - Adjustable Bump Stops - Accessories - Suspension
I thought those might be nice because I wouldnt have to worry about them again. Thanks for all the help and let me know what you guys think about everything!

There should be a stock bumpstop cup. You really need an extension with your lift, since you don't want to overcompress stock springs. There are two options I know of - jounce bumpers that go inot the existing cup (replacing a shorter bumpstop in the cup) and an extender that goes between the cup and where it mounts to the spring mount. I've heard bad things about the extended lengh jounce stops - they can fall out, may not compress properly. So if it were me I would look for a cup spacer, not the extended length jounce bumper.

wow, they're charging $70 for aluminum bar stock? at least they're catching on

Performance Accessories body lift pucks will do the same job, at a fraction the price.
Amazon.com: Performance Accessories BB01 Body Lift Spacer: Automotive

Search Amazon for Performance Accessories body lift spacers, "Big Block" BB01 (1" tall, 3" OD), and "Mini Block" MB01 (1" tall, 2" OD). Each are available in 1" increments. BB's fit on front lower spring perch, MB's fit on rear upper frame end.

the PA pucks are the same kind of adjustable as the Rokmen's (or JKS for that matter). either way you still need to remove/add pucks, the only difference is the material and the price.

buy a 3" PA puck, if you need 2.25", use a saw. now you have 2.25" and 0.75" 'adjustable' pucks

This is the route I went as well. I bought mine on ebay. I just got 3" zone blocks and cut them to size.
