    They may need a rebuild but most likely what your feeling is the lack of down travel? They're already extended to the point of only having 1.25" left before they're over extending. You could just trim up where it rubs and keep the lift low......think of a trophy truck with a lower center of gravity and big ass tires that fully stuff.

    Could be a combination due to the tires, heavier compound/tire pressure, etc?

    Thanks. Yeah I think the new tires have something to do with it, but you're right they might need to be rebuilt. ugh...
