Tie rod rubbing on axle cover problem

I've recently put a g2 Dana 44 from axle of my jeep and have notice that my tie rod is rubbin up against the axle cover. What are some way to fix this issue I've though about grinding down the tie rod but I'm figuring that's probly not the best idea any advice on similar issues would be appreciated.

Offset tie rod ends.

I'm pretty sure you need to get that kit as well as this

BFH...If the diff housing cover is a standard stamped or welded steel unit then beat it with a sledge until it has a nice dimple in it. If it is cast in steel then take a grinder to the cover if it is hitting where the name plate is. You dont need that stupid thing anyways. If its rubbing up higher and not where the ribbing is you can probably still use the BFH technique. If you are worried about clearance between the cover and ring gear take some playdo and stick it on the inside of the cover and squish it back on. Remove cover and it will tell you how much room you have to play with. you could also get a regular stamped steel cover as well.

I had the same issue with a SOLID cover now it is a smooth no name cover. Pull it off and get your angle grinder out and give it hell. Then after you get the clearance get a front diff skid.
