bumpstop guide hits coil spring?

I just did a 3 inch rough country lift, and im getting rub from the bumpstop guide/assembly on the inside of my coil spring on the passenger side only. The bumpstop guide/assembly is more forward and not center in the coil, so when the coil stretches this bit rubs on the inside coil. The driver side one is center though with no rub, and also i did remove my trac bar and passenger control arm when installing the coils if that matters. Anyone know why this is happening and what I could do to adjust it center in the coil?

thanks

sounds like you need to adjust your control arms . your axle is not foward as far as it should be.

is the rubber bump stop hitting or is the piece of metal its jammed into hitting? if its the actual bump stop its easily fixed by pushing it away back towards center.

its the actual metal hitting the spring. Are the stock control arms adjustable at all? seems like i through it out of adjustment by taking it out, since the other side doesn't rub and i never took that one out

You can turn the coils a bit and move them some.

main issue is that you need a longer Trackbar now that you lifted the Jeep to 3". You also need to adjust the caster. Did you do an alignment after the lift. here are instructions; Alignment

I have an IRO double shear track bar, and the Axel is perfectly centered. And I have aligned it, I've set the tow in to 1/8th and the castor is good, but iam more concerned with the pinion angle though.
