    I think I figured out my problem. I may have mounted the resi brackets the wrong way. the front should point down and the back should be up. then the tire would clear it when I turn. Im gonna flip them tomorrow.

    I didnt even knew it would make a difference. but after looking at my pics from my old truck I guess thats the problem

    your right. but where these are rubbing on the resi is close enough to the very outer edge that if i swap the mounts around it will be able to clear. 99% sure ;)


    If murphy is reading this........well I just hope he isnt.

    I swapped them around and no more rubbing.

    but I have been hearing some weird squeaking coming from the suspension. I found out the sway bar is rubbing on the driver side CO now....:facepalm: if its not one thing its another....damnit

    I ordered the relocation brackets for the sway bar to correct the issue
