Is this what you're talking about?? If so that's pretty comon. If you didn't add the spacers you would simply have to hit that spot a few times with a small sledge and you'd be good.

I gotta look at my wheel wells tomorrow. That spot in the pic seems right up behind the rear lower a-arm. It doesn't seem like the cramp angle is tight enough to put the tire there.

It'll only hit if you don't have spacers. That rubbing in the pic was with 265/70 with no wheel spacers.

Got it washed.

It looked sooo nice that a khaki WK was eyeing it up from behind, bowing behind it. Hahaha!

Had a productive sat/monday..towards the start of my build hopefully happening this coming weekend. Sat. I picked up a set of five 0 mile JK rims for 250 bucks and was willing to meet me halfway so I only had to drive 25 min to meet him! Then today the UPS man brought me a new front plate holder...old one was cracked, a set of 4 Hankook Dynapro AT/S RF10's 265/70/17 both via amazon for the best price to be found with free shipping. He also brought a set of OME 991 springs for the front via Kolak...now just waiting on the rest of the lift and the Spidertrax from Kolak..hopefully the WK will be sitting a little higher by the end of the week.

To be fair it was yesterday, but the wk got some fresh oil & filter and a quick drain valve.

After the oil change I was looking around the back trying to silence the squeak I'm getting over the smallest of bumps. I silenced the front with the new sway bar bushings, has anyone had to do the rear sway bushings? My drivers side actually has a visible gap between the bar and the bushing (forgot to get a picture). The squeak drives me crazy, no matter what I did I couldn't get it silent with silicon spray, and overnight it rained and it was silent all day today.
