Tires Rubbing

I got a 6" pro comp lift and 37x13.50 toyo mt's. They rub at full turn and if I'm turning and hit a bump or anything uneven really. Anyone else having this issue with 37s and 6" lift?

I have the same issues with a 4 inch lift and 37s on stock rims. The tire on the drivers side rubs on the side of the radius arm. I was told that maybe a adjustable track bar would help to center the axle because the drop bracket was not enough.

They are rubbing on the bottom of the plastic in the fenderwell. I trimmed it up some and it helped but it just drives me insane. It's not that bad but I don't like it. Was thinking of putting a 7" spring in the front but wasn't sure if it would work with the lift components of the 6". Its a pro comp. And 37s on a stock rim will rub the radius arms because of the backspacing on the rims.

I also have a slight vibration when taking off but its only for a second. I have the carrier bearing drop kit but it still vibrates a little. Was thinking about getting some traction bars? Any info, prices, brands?

I had the same problem with the inner fenders, I took a peice of 1/4" threaded rod, a washer and a acorn nut(attached to the inner fender) and the other side attached to step bar bracket and pulled the inner fender away from the tire. It is invisable unless you crawl under the rig and look up.
