need more lift

Hello guys, I recently bought some new wheels for my truck and now it rubs pretty bad when i turn into drive ways or hit bumps when I turn. My truck has a 8" pro comp lift with 20x12 fuel hostage rims (38x15.5R20 toyo mts).The question I have is is it possible to increase the size of my lift by like 2"+ to clear the front tires, without doing a body lift. I have trimmed up the fenders a little bit, but would like to Not to hack up my whole truck. So if there is a way to do it what would be required? Suspensions shops around here just try to sell me a whole new lift and arn't of any help, so thats why im posting here. Thanks in advance for any information/ suggestions.

yeah i was thinking of a spring spacer or leveling kit but all the suspensions shops refused to sell me one and said it was a bad idea that the lift was designed to be a certain height and messing or adjusting the lift would make it unsafe and just lead to problems. So thats why i was wondering if someone has done something similar and how it worked out for them?

I think they are full of poop. Its no different then adding a leveling kit to a non leveled truck...

So adding a coil spacer or leveling kit i should be fine, would it affect my drive shaft angle since its already lifted? or would i have to get a different trac bar or brake lines for the front? Sorry about all the questions just trying to figure out if it will work before i go and order stuff. Thanks
