Default Tyre rubbing on steering lock

hi all, i recently lifted my 95 model sj70, now when steering is on full lock the tyres rub against the leaf spring, any ideas on why it may be doing this as the problem was not there before i lifted the suspension?

Cheers, Dylan

What lift did you install?
Did you go with a wider spring pack (Wranglers)?

lovels big bore shocks and blue max springs, not sure that the springs are wider seeing as they fit in the same hangers?

Not always. Some flare out a little and some have wider retention bands to keep the packs together.
You should be able to adjust the turning radius by adding a small washer behind the felt retainer bolts that are closest to the stops on the axel housing. I can post a pic later when I get home.

Here is a pic of the bolt I'm talking about. Add a washer to the one in front and the one in back of the axle. Smaller turning radius (change is hard to notice) but it keeps the tire off the spring.
