Fox 2.0 remote reservoir rubbing

Ok, so i kind of looked around and most of the threads and forums to find anybody with the same issue and could not find. I have a 2015 unlimited Freedom Edt. with Rock Krawler 3.5 inch X Factor with all CAs, 35 inch BFG M/Ts with G2 spacers (cant temember the size but i think it is 1.25"). I also have the fox 2.0 remote res shocks. Steel braded brake lines, sway bar links. AEV CA brackets.
The problem is the tire on the passenger side is rubbing onto the shock when stuffed up into the wheel well and at fully steered to passenger side with the sway bar links disconnected. I have added washers to limit steering to stop tire rub onto the control arms on flat surface but like i mentioned the shock rub is still happening. I am not sure if i am supposed to mount the remote res to the frame!, if so, than i think i was given the wrong front shocks by 4WheelParts.
(The new brake lines also rubbing but ill figure that out somehow).
Has anyone with these shocks and tires checked the clearance and had the same issue? Any solution?
Any help is much appreciated.

Here is a picture of how the shock is mounted. I have the identical shocks in the back.

Mine rub too, it's a backspace issue. For 12.5" wide tire you should have at most 4.5" BS. Assuming factory wheels the 1.25" spacer puts you at 5.0" BS.

So wheels with proper backspace for the optimum solution, 1.75" spacers for the less than optimum solution.

I also relocated my front reservoirs to the frame.

Good luck

The upper back side of the tire rubs on the reservoir.

I actually want to move the res to the frame is well because it doesnt look like it could be fixed unless the backspacing is increased and i dont want to put more stress in that area.
In which case i am eaither going to have to buy new set of fox 2.0 with the longer hose that connects to the res. I dont think 4wheelparts would exchange the ones i have.

The one you mounted to the frame, is it the same one i have ?

I believe there is a bolt near the joints that you can either tighten or loosen to not let the wheel turn all the way to the right on the passenger side..mine rubs a tiny bit so I never did anything about it
