Lift Problem

I am wanting to put some new tires and offset wheels on my truck. I have 35 BFGs on it right now and it don't hit fender. Hits the leafs a little bit. When I turn the wheel to full lock left and right it looks like it would hit if I had offset wheels. I already have a 2.5" leveling kit. What can I do other than put a bigger lift on to bring the front of the truck up enough to clear? I don't understand how other trucks wont have any lift at all on the truck and will clear offset wheels and 33s.

Did your kit come with a adj track bar or drop bracket? If not your axle shifted 1/2-3/4"..hence the rubbing.

Nope and yes it did. Front left sticks out further. I check out some trucks this weekend at the SSS though and im at the same height as some of those guys with offset wheels and they aren't rubbing so I guess ill be alright when I get the track bar
