Gotta Vent

So I get my brand spanking new Goodyear 12.50 x 35's all hooked up on my new Rock Crawler rims, with simulated beadlocks no less. Get em on and yea they rub a little on the back side, (only got a 4 inch lift), but hey, no problem's here cause I'm stopping by the shop on the way home and getting my new 1 inch body lift from Daystar to go on top of my 4 inch so all will be good. ------------Yea Right------------

Get home start slinging wrenches and all goes GREAT. Bout an hour and a half install with no broke bolts striped nuts OR ANYTHING! I'm feeling good, the squirts looking even better THEN,,,,,,,,,, I get in to take a test ride and as I back out of the drive,,,,,,,,,,,,,,the front tires are still rubbing on the back side against the leafs. Not a bunch but enough to be a problem.
Now I'm stuck cuz I really didn't want to go higher right now. Life's a beach sometimes.

I'm done now

Calm down dont have a stroke..............All you need to do if the spring is rubbing on the inside of the tire is to adj your steering stops. How much backspace does your new rims have?

I'm trying, I'm trying,,lol, there 10inch with 4 inch back space. I was trying my best to keep most of the tire under the flare. Any idea how much play I have in the stops?

There just bolts so you can adjust them out or get longer bolts. pretty easy.

Yup adjust your steering stops. No amount of lift, either suspension or body lift is going to help with the tire rubbing on the spring.

Adjusting the steering stops worked like a champ, thanks guys. Yes, stock rearend, that is until I can break it and get me a good set up. So far I've had no luck twisting it till it breaks and I have put it in a few places that should have trashed it. Guess it's not that weak after all.

Here's a visual aid for others who may read this thread.

For the steering stop, there's a bolt with a nut on it. The nut is actually welded onto the bolt, but you can just remove the bolt & nut all at once & shim it out with a washer (or washers) to get the steering to stop prior to rubbing.
