Coil rubbing bumpstop

The driverside is rubbing the metal cup that use to house a rubber jounce bump stop. I tried crushing it with channel locks but I'm not strong enough to make it budge. Anything I can do without removing the coil

Is it rubbing on the side or the back/front of the bumpstop.

The back sorry it's because I lengthened my uppers to make my pinion straight with the driveshaft (pointing at the t case output

Edit:
I will check to see if centering it better will help but it's only when slowly down or hitting bumps and spied bumps.

The rear doesn't have to point right at the t case output.

its the front axle Sorry for the way i worded it

My driverside FRONT coils prain, rubs on the BACKside of the bumpstop(cup shaped metal that holds the rubber piece).
The rubber inside it is missing so i dont care what i have to do to that cup i just want to not hear the sprungy noise every bump and deacceleration (stop signs )

i tried squeezing it with channel locks in hopes to just oval it alittle away from the coil but that didnt work. ic ant squeeze/bend it
