Tire rub

So I finally got my tires (30x9.5r15 copper discovery a/t) and I'm havin a little rub when turning to the right... I believe it's rubbing on the black canister hanging under my driver side headlight... Will my 2" BB eliminate this when I put it on or should I relocate the canister some how

The round black cannister is your charcoal canister. You can relocate it or yes, get a BB. However, your stock wheels sit very close into the wheelwells and that is what is causing your tire rub. You can add a couple of washers to adjust your steering stops however, that will slightly increase your turning radius.

Dude, a 2" BB is like 60 bucks. Spend it, install the lift, and you'll be fine.

he needs both wheel spacers and coil spacers if he doesn't want to rub. and yes, just suck it up, get everything and do it right. if you are under such a tight budget (or just cheap as hell) that you cannot even afford wheel/coil spacers, then you shouldn't be lifting it to begin with.

i spent about $800 on my 4" kit and ride quality sucks. most people spend over $2000 to make the ride quality close to stock again. you are looking at spending $200-300. if you cannot afford the barest of the barest minimum, then you probably shouldn't go down this path. and you should've probably researched before you got the 30" tires.

instead of doing 2" bb, you can fit a 30" with 3/4" coil spacers. i ran .75" spacers with 30" tires (i thought my ride was stock until i took it apart to lift it. the coil spacer in there was so old that it blended in with everything around it). however, you will still rub when you turn. you'll need wheel spacers to correct that. spidertrax is the most popular brand. contact kolak@aol.com for the best prices. i did my research and i can guarantee that no one can beat his price.

k. just to conclude, here is what you need:

4x 3/4" BB Coil Spacers
4x 1.25" Spidertrax Wheel Spacers

and you should be able to run 30x9.5 without rubs. kolak should be able to get you everything in one package.

Im nearly $2,000 into my lift. While only a 2" BB, I NEEDED 4 new tires AND wheels. Before my rig even touched the ground I put ALL new bushings, new track bars, and lower control arms front and rear. Im still waiting on a few suspension components, jeep is still not on the road after a month, but why put my life or my wife's in danger? I'm one to do it right the first time. Sometimes in life we have to grab our sacks and take the hit. You'll be so much happier in the end if you do it all the first time, and get it done right. Youre wallet might not... But money is made to be spent, right?

If you want to do it the cheap way which I would do because there only 30s I would put three 3/8s washers on each bumpstop. 30s dont require any lift. even with a 2 bb you will rub. its the space apart not up or down. Or you could buy spacers. You will decrease your turning radious by like an inch maybe. People go insane with mods when little is actually needed. But a BB isnt a bad idea if you wheel much. With a 2''bb you dont need anything else. Well an alighnment but thats it enless you have other issues. If your on old stock springs your most likely sitting 2" lowwer than stock anyways. but you can go to 20" with no mods 18'' is stock. Measure from the center of your axle to the rim of your fender. But a 2"bb is small you should go big atleast a 3.5 I always suggest 3.5 as a start. You will lift it again later trust me. But if moneys short just use the washers.

I never said anything about not spending the money or taking the cheap way out.. I already have my BB ordered and I wasn't aware I would need wheel spacers to stop the rubbing that was the reason for my thread and So thanks iser for the info on wheel spacers size... All I needed to know they are gettin ordered this week

I have no intentions of goin bigger until it is no longer my dd and strictly a toy and weekend get away.. I ordered the spring spacers and shocks bc my stocks are shot... Been shoppin around for bushings and also found spidertrax wheel spacers to order... already had plans for everything yall mentioned except the wheel spacers so It's not the cheap way out I coulda jus went to advance and got the cheap spring spacers and called it quits at $25

lol Ohh I almost forgot when you put the 2" bb you might want to look into something to hold the coil in place. You wont have much to hang out the coil. I dont know how much you wheel so just something to think about. you will notice when you put them on. You can buy the extended bump stops or I have heard of people useing exhaust pipeing. Dont want that spring slipping off on you. This is with 3.5 lift rancho springs and a 2'' BB. Im not opposed to bb lifts as I have one myself but nothing beats a solid suspension.
