wheel about to touch spring on back

hey guys i was just doing a oil change and like always i just out under the whole jeep to see if anything is lookin messed up or what not.

anyways i was looking and the back driver side tire is like 1/4in from touching part of the spring and the back pass side is like 2-3 inches away what does this mean? i will have pics up in about 5 min
i took a good like at the tire and it never touched it yet so thats good

if this helps i have 33's 10.5 and a 4.5in lift

this is the close one




this is the other side

I had a similar problem. When i did my lift i had to put a rear adjustable track bar in even with the relocation bracket. That will re-center your axle with the proper lenth. I also went to new rims so with a different offset later to accomidate 12.5" tires.

As csabo said, you need to center your rear axle. Hopefully that 4.5" lift came with an adjustable rear trackbar. If not, time to get one

It's not hard. You can take the less expensive route by simply installing a rear trackbar relocation bracket. The bracket will move the axle back in the opposite direction to what your suspension lift did to it. Like this one RE1603 - TRACK BAR BRACKET TJ REAR W/O - Rubicon Express. Or go with an adjustable length track bar which is a better fix but the relocation bracket will work fine too.
