Need ideas on what to do.

I have an 03 f250. Im having trouble with my front drivers side tire rubbing the inside of my wheel well even though it has a 2in mini pack up front. I have been considering the shackle kit but dont really know what to do with the back. The back has a 4in block already too so the truck sits pretty level. And how hard would it be to make the shackle kit myself, or has anyone tried it? I'm in college and a $350 kit isnt in my price range right now. If anyone has any suggestions or other ideas that would be great. Thanks for the help guys!

if you have access to a welder, grinder, drill press and some flat stock and some round or square tubing then make them yourself. not really a whole lot to it, look at some on a dealers site and there ya go. probably find a post on here, i'm sure somebody on heres done it

My avatar is my goal for the 7.3

Why not trim the plastic some so it doesn't rub? Takes 3 mins and a sharp pocket knife.

I would like to put 35's on here soon. I know it would be an easy fix going that way but I really dont want to just cut a piece out. Im sort of obsessive compulsive about that kind of stuff. Is there a place where it breaks down the dimensions of the shackle kit? I would like to do it myself but dont want to end up doing it wrong.
