Plain and simple... You need a bigger tire or smaller lift.

Lower it down ~5", lengthen shock mounts, stick with 37's. If you still have the D30 up front, you're already on the line.

OlllllllO

I do believe the axle gear ratio limit for your Dana 30 is 4.88.. not nearly low enough for any thing larger then 37's. You'd also want to upgrade the axles for bigger tires.. you should already want bigger axles for those 37's!
