I would have to look at it, but build a sway bar disc. search the jeep forums to see for a universal one, but but it sounds like ur rubbing the fenders and such, only way to help that is skinner tires/wider off set wheel. let me know when ur in springs area and I could meet uo with yea and give ya some ideas.
