Tire Rub

I recently bought a 2011 f250 swb with a 6" lift and 37x13.50x20 wheels. I have noticed the drivers side tire rubs on the radius arm when the wheels are turned all the way to the left but there is no rub at all on the passenger side when the wheels are turned the other direction. Any ideas as to why the rub only on the one side?

Sounds like your track bar is to long, and its causing your axle to be un centered, could be from your front coils settling.

Are you running the stock rims? I'm have the same issue on my truck with a 4in lift and 35s on the stock rims.

You have 12.5" wide tire where a 10.8" tire is designed to go. That is why you rubbing.

the track bar looks to be the stock....would a front end alignment solve the issue?

No, you need an adjustable trac bar. That would be best. 2nd best would be a trac bar relocation bracket. But

With the adjustable trac bar, your alignment shop will be able to shift the entire axle left or right. My best guess is this will stop you from rubbing.
