You need at least 5", and it is still not enough. You have to have a SPOA lift.

I lifted my Sammy 7" and 1" wheel spacers on both sides and now there is barely enough room for the 33"x12.5" tires I have. And still rubs in turns. I had to hammer in all the sticking out parts inside the wheel well, and I had to space out the wheels to push them away from the springs, and still at full lock to the right it rubs just a little.

so it has a standard spoa and they fit but i need more in flex it rubs so would a shackle reversal system work to give it that little extra or would an add leaf do it or what would be the best way to go?

You do need a little more, but I would stay away from any Add-A-Leaf... It turns the suspension into a cement block. Just too darn stiff.

I am running SPOA with 2" lifted YJ's on TrailTough drop shackles and it is just about perfect in height and articulation.

Personally I'm running a 5" SPOA with 1.5" Rancho springs from RRO.

Nope. I am running a heavily gussetted stock front axle with 26 spline Spidertrax RCV Performance shafts pushed by 5.12's and an ARB.
The rear axle is a Spidertrax Sidewinder axle housing with Full floating axle shafts, Warn premium lockouts, 5.12's and another ARB... Not exactly stock, but not Toys either.
(I like to abuse them... and Toys aren't really that much stronger than stock Zook axles, you still have to beef them up to crack rocks)

I trimmed the stock bumper to fit the tires. I'll be removing the stock bumper soon, after I get my ARB bullbar. I did install spidertrax spacers because without them the wheels will have a hard rub against the springs. The right wheel still rubs at full lock to the right just a little, I'm going to adjust the turning angle to mitigate that.
