Help leveling 4" lift

I installed a 4" zone lift last weekend. It went great and looks even better. I did find two problems. I have the factory wheels and my 33 12.5 rub the swaybar link bolts at full turn. Should I put wheel spacers or my other thought is the front sits about 1" or so lower than the rear If I put 1" spacers in the front springs could this fix it?

a spacer for the front springs would level it out, for the price of wheel spacers, you can get steel wheels unless you dont like them...

get new rims to fix your rubbing problem...pick up a set of 15x8's with about a 3.5" backspace

as for the springs, yes a 1" spacer would fix that

Im putting on the spacers tomorow. As for the wheels I kind of like my factory wheels. I may try to make my own disconects with a little offset to avoid rubbing the tire. I only need about 1/2" to clear the tires at full lock.
