grinding noise only in reverse

Sorry if my profile is confusing but my dd is a wj and thats the ride with the problems.

2001 grand cherokee laredo
4.0 6 cyl
2" teraflex bb
spidertrax 1 1/4 wheel spacers
15" wheels w/30 x 9.5 x 15 bfg at ko's

The problem is whenever backing out of driveway or parking spot if i turn the wheel all the way to the right I get a horrible grinding noise. It doesn't happen when turning left. I've checked for tires rubbing on body as well as wheels for rubbing on calipers or any other front end parts but can't find any issues. So far my only solution is to not turn so far to the right but I would like to find the heart of the problem any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thank you
