Teraflex Level kit or lift boost will help my rubbing issue

I was wondering if anyone has either a Teraflex level kit or boost lift. I have 255/70/16 on a 16x8 blackrock rim and im getting a little rub on full choke. I was wondering will any of these two will fix my issue? Or will raising it not help cause its a width issue? Any help would be great.

Looking for people who have this tire size and rim size and have either of these solutions and it gave you the room you needed. Thanks

8 inch wheels are killing ya for one thing, not knowing the backspacing could be another
Tire size as well to some extent
You could do a clevis lift of 3/8 of an inch and a 1/4 inch top plate to level the front with the rear pretty much
Not knowing how old you KK is / how much the springs have sagged its hard to say what else you may need to do

It would help possibly for a while until your springs sag more

Yes it will help. No it isn't a good idea. I ran that for about a year. Got it from RRO. They market it under the over the top lift. You will bottom out the front shocks frequently and the rear shocks that came with mine absolutely sucked and you will need longer rear shocks, not to mention the upper control arm contact with the factory arms. For a few hundred more you could get OME.
What's the backspace on your rims? That probably has a lot to do with your rubbing issue. 5" is too much backspace with a wider tire, especially with an 8" rim. The most backspace you should run is 4".
The lift comes with a 2" poly spacer for the rear and a welded steel spacer (2") for the front. It's very difficult to install without a spring compressor because the clevis bolt won't line up by about 1/2".

It may fit but its a junk a** way to lift
You'll hate the ride and the way it handles
Save up the money and do it right
For what you are paying for that crap you're half way to a new full spring lift

That's the one, same crap RRO sells and the only one teraflex makes for a KK. You'll need longer shocks for the rear as well. I posted my reply shortly after you asked the question in your first post. I don't know why it didn't show up until I posted again. I was trying to save you some money.

I called teraflex asking for a pair of 1" spacers for the rear but they don't have anything that'll fit a KK. I was told the market wasn't there. I tried to tell him some suggestions about how he could sell some smaller spacers to go with suspension lifts but he didn't even want to hear it.
