AzTJ The only high clearance arms I've see are by Rock Krawler and they are only available on their long arm kits.

97flexy I'l take a picture for your tomorrow, in the day light. I was adjusting my steering today & noticed about half the tire sticks out. I'm running 33x10.5 on stock five star steelies.

If you are rubbing they can't be sticking out too much unless you are running a super wide tire, unless you are trying to run a 12.50 and still shove them in past your fenders. I run a 12.50 with an after market rim (more backspace) and have no rubbing issues. The tires do stick out about 1-2 inches past my stock fenders but that is pretty normal. Sorry wish I had a better pic of it front on to see how far they stick out.

UnlimitedLJ04 Possible Solutions:
1. Buy new control arms = $1000 for a good set (Clayton Off-Road, Rokmen)
2. Buy wheels with less backspacing = $200-500
3. Buy wheel spacers to get less backspacing = $200
4. Buy grade 5 washers at the local hardware store for the steering stops = $1.50

Synergy Suspension*::*Synergy Suspension Jeep JK High Clearance Front Lower Control Arms (Pair) I'm running 33's on stock wheels and they will rub if i crank the steering to far I'd like to eliminate that & i thought bent lower control arms would stop the rubbing.
