If you’ve just installed a set of bigger tires on your stock wheels or on a set of new wheels with too much back spacing, there’s a good chance that you’ll have some rubbing issues on your front sway bar, frame rail and/or lower control arms while making a full turn. This is also something you might see after installing a small lift especially if an adjustable front track bar wasn’t included with the kit. Now, the obvious fix for this would be to install a set of wheels that have less back spacing or install a set of wheel spacers to help reduce your back spacing or, in the case of a lift related issue, install an adjustable front track bar to recenter your axle but, if the rubbing you’re seeing is very minor, you may find it just as easy to adjust out your steer stops. Although this will cause you to loose some of your turning radius, this fix is super easy, cheap and can be done in within minutes using a couple washers and a wrench.
