A cheap but little lift for 31/10.5

Had wide fenders but someone in a parking lot crack one.So I put the stocks back on for now
Found out that every time i round a curve they scrub.So now I want to raise it a little
would a shackle lift help.I dont know about this part.But dont have the funds to spend much on it.I have seen the add a leaf spring set up but still a little pricey for now but maybe later.Any replies would help.
Just in case i do mud slinging more than rock crawling so I dont need much lift Thanks

If you only play in the mud then you could get shackle lifts they are really cheap and would give like 1 1/2 inch lift. They make your approach angle bad but you said you don't play on rocks so you should be fine. look at this http://jcwhitney.com/productnoitem.j...=55069&BQ=jcw2 or if you want you could just do a body lift. and if you want it really cheap go with the hockey pucks.

do a really mild shackle lift (no more than 1 inch lift) and a 1 inch body lift. that will have enough clearance for 31s
