Running 32s with Rubicon springs/shocks on an '03 Sport

Hey guys, complete newbie here, just bought my new baby, a 2003 Sport. Has 17,000 miles. I asked what the setup on this was before I bought it and the PO said there is NO lift on it, he just installed Rubicon springs and shocks. It is sitting on 32 Muds. The 32s appear to fit OK altho they do bang the lower control arm when turned tightly. I inspected it and cannot find any evidence of any type of body/suspension lift or coil spacers. It was aligned and tracks really straight down the road. Appears to have some type of caster/camber disks installed on the lower arms.

I want to take it out this weekend for some light wheeling, so I guess my question this setup OK with the 32s? I want to make sure I'm not going to tear anything up with those 32s if I take it out wheeling. Is anyone else out there running the "Rubicon/Sport spring/shocks swap"?? Whats the general opinion of this? Thanks in advance, I look forward to being involved in the Wrangler community

I wheeled my TJ for a little with no lift and 32's.
It rubbed up front when turned tight also. With a lot of flex my tires would rub the flares too. I never damaged anything. Its not 100% desirable but I did it.

Moral of the story, just go wheeling, lol.

Awesome, i will take it out. Not gonna get too crazy with it. I just havent heard of anyone going to the time and trouble of swapping out their Sport shocks and springs for the Rubicons. And then not lifting it. And then slapping on 32s. I guess I'm not sure the benefit of the Rubicon setup over the Sport setup vs time/effort to do it.
