Exclamation Tire rubbing

Hey every one i need some help. So yesterday i was rotating my tires and then i notices on my rear passanger side that the tire was rubbing on the thing that holds the coil spring in place.(sorry i dnt know what its called) Theres about less than a centameter of space between the rear passanger tire and the ting that holds the coil spring in place. On the rear left drivers side theres more than an inch of space. Im pretty sure my tire isnt supposed to touch that thing at all so can anyone help thanx

Your axles arent centered, most likely from a small lift. You can do three things:
1) new rims - most expensive
2) wheel spacers - less expensive
3) buy a rear trackbar bracket to go with your lift.

If you don't have a lift, I can't tell you why it isn't centered, there could be a number of reasons. I would persoanlly say go with a more narrow tire, because you are probably running wider than stock, or to just go with the spacers.

That's the upper spring perch. An adjustable trackbar or a rear trackbar relocater kit should center your axle better so the space will be even on both sides. your profile doesn't list a lift though. Did you lift and not update? Usually off-center is from lifting.

Wheels spacers are fine. BL didn't affect the track bar. Its all from your suspension lift. The JKS rear track bar, I don't know much about. If its adjustable then you can adjust it. if not you need the bracket.

the bracket will center the axle, not change the length. it just moves it towards the inside of your jeep. as your jeep rises stuff wants to shift to the passenger side (I think) and the bracket will center it. If its adjustable youll make it longer.
