I have a TJ with a D30 front, and 33's. As far as I can tell, the knuckles are original. The tires rub quite a bit on my lower control arms, frame, and sway bar (and the fender wells at full stuff'd). The control arms (I believe they are factory) have a sharp edge that cuts the outer lugs if I'm not careful.

To prevent tire damage, I decided to throw a few washers on the steering stop bolt. I was disappointed and very confused when I realized that the bolt is a couple inches higher than the bump stop on the axle! The two points do not contact...

I'm lost. Anyone know what could be causing this issue? If I can't resolve the misalignment, is there some other way to prevent tire rub? Not looking to change backspacing.

Thanks in advance.

There is no steering stop bolt in that picture....

The only bolt visible is one of your wheel bearing bolts.

As shown in the picture above, the stops are on the front side of the knuckle
