ljrubitm lossen the stop bolt and put some washers in is all you need.

dweilmd Since the tires are rubbing on the sway bar, would extended sway bar links work to solve the problem?

dweilmd I appreciate the input. I have been considering getting new wheels, so I guess now would be a good time. Thanks.

Joe Dirt I ran that setup for a while with 4" backspacing on my wheels and it worked well. 4" BS is very standard and easy to find on 15x8 rims.

Ironman Yea, I coil spacer will give you more ride height but won't have much effect when you crank the wheel in a turn. Like was stated earlier. You will need a rim with less backspacing. Your stock rims are probably about 5" or so backspacing. You need to go with about 3". You could go with the spacer idea. They seem to be getting more widely accepted. I wouldn't go over about an inch though. I have used 3/4" spacers for years now and am still on my original set of hubs with about 145,000 miles.

If they are just rubbing when the wheel is cranked it's because you have a wider tire than your wheel back spacing will allow which the lift isn't going to fix.

I agree. It's the whell back spacing that is giving you the problem. A lift won't help. The lift only prevents rubbing when you are flexing not when you are turning.

As it's too late to buy 10.5 width tires, get some different wheels with more negative offset or some wheel spacers (not what I'd do).

After that, you may get some rubbing when you go offroading with those tires and no lift. Is everything else on the jeep stock?

Another coil spring spacer question

I have a 2005 TJ DD. I do some light off roading on the weekends. Just put 32x11.50 BFG KM2's on my stock canyon rims. The tires rub during extreme turns. I want to put a coil spring spacer kit on. I can get a 1.5" kit for FREE, but the manufacturer says it will only fit up to a 31" tire. Does anyone know if I can get away with 1.5" without any other mods? Can I use my stock shocks?
Thanks.
