thoughts on wheel spacers?

just lifted my 95 yj with the rc 4" lift and 1 1/4" shackle lift.put on uniqe wheels with four inch back space and 33 12.50 goodyear duratrac tires.problem is when i turn sharp bot ways i feel rubbing.deffinetly is not hitting the fenders but could be hitting the leafs.or could my axle ujoints be going bad?when i turn it and get out and look at it there is only bout a 1/4" between tire and leaf...just wondering how dependableare wheel spacers of if they are a bad idea.. thanks steve

Yes I would do both axles....it won't increase your wheelbase, it will increase your track width
