focus....form a coherent sentence and ask again.

what do you have now?
what lift, what components, what height, how much bumpstop extension, what shocks (compressed & extended lengths if possible, PN's if possible), body lift, control arms, etc?

now, what are you trying to do?

Spacers means a lot in the Jeep world and have varied uses, so to answer your question - yes.

Ok sorry let me clarify wheel spacers.

ok, so why do you want wheel spacers? what wheels do you have now, and what is the backspacing?

3.5-4" total backspacing is plenty for 35x12.50R15 tires.

Not sure on the back spacing they are 35x12.50x15 they rub when I turn I have a 4 inch suspension lift.

well, start by verifying the backspacing then.

if the backspacing is appropriate as described above, then adjust the steering stops.

Spacers = meh

If your existing backspacing is greater than 5", then I wouldn't worry with the spacer. If less than 5", then I think you'll add undue stress on your wheel bearings from the leverage and will cause premature wear.
