Rubbing Antirock bar at full turn and any flex

Hey, hoping someone has a solution here. Installed a Currie Antirock on my JK and so far loving it! Great articulation on trails, nice road handling, no noticable body roll, and love not having to disconnect.

BUT, I noticed that with any flex and at full turn my wheel rubs against the connecting bar. This did not happen with stock sway bar nor with TF quick disconnects.

Hoping somebody has some solutions here or I'll simply toss in a few washers on the steering stops and be done with it

Thanks!!

I'm not sure. Those specs are not found anywhere. When I called them on installation question (their install directions are horrible) they were nice and friendly but not all that technical.

Yup, problem on both sides which is a shame. That backspacing on AEV wheels was absolutely perfect with traditional sway bar and links.

I also emailed Currie and will post any findings.

Thanks all!

Looking at my Antirocks with 4.5 of backspace I can see where there might be a little rub at full turn. I'm wondering if a shorter rod might solve the issue.
One issue I and some others have seen is the link ends hitting the wheel well shield on the upswing. There's nothing in the directions, but using a sharp edge you can cut off the shield level with the upper spring bucket to address this issue.

Yup, that's my assumption too.

LV, Min inner well is pretty well cut-up and tucked but will be on the lookout.

It's weird on level ground zero rub. Clears by the width of cardboard and that's at full turn when the steering gearbox makes that strained sound. But as soon as a tire is articulating there is chance for rub and full turn.
