Steering stabilizer help

Bought the truck a week ago and it doesn't have steering stabilizers although the front tie rod had a Fabtech mount with the two outboard mounts for a dual-stabilizer setup. Wondering which stabilizers will fit? The mounting nuts are also missing although I can probably go to Ace and find the size / pitch, and washers too.



I'm also experiencing tire rubbing when at almost full lock, worse at right lock than left.

Driver-side leaf:


Passenger-side leaf:


Ideas? Thanks.

Where do the spacers go, between the wheel and the hub? If so, I thought those were a bad idea, although I cannot remember where I heard that.
