please HELP, rubbing issues??

I have a 97 f 250 4x4 and i am buying my friends new 20"rims with 35's. we put on a front and a back wheel yesterday, all is good in the back thanks to my upgraded 350 springs, but the front hits the bumper, but also when fully turned rubs on the leaf spring. I am certain that after i get my new 4" leaf springs for the front, everything will clear, I would really apprieciate it if someone who has done this withoput lifting the entire truck can tell me if these new 4"leaf springs will clear and work fully for sure...before i spend this kind of money on these rims and tires today! thanks for anyones help

Its all about offset / back spacing of the wheels. Did you get the 20's from a vehicle newer than 05'?

Yes its off of a 06 dodge cummins. And there can only be one offset with those wheels because they are 20s on 35s. I cant change anything wheels are already made up. and the front wheels stick out farther then the back, my buddy had the same thing with both of his 6.0ls. But i could put maybe a 1/2inch wheel spacer on to give me that last little bit of turning radius, but its not worth it because i dont like fender flares and they stick out far enough. I have it figured out, im getting the wheels but the 4inch leaf springs are going to allow it to clear the font bumper, but will still most likley rub a bit on the leaf spring itself, and nothing else....so be it, ill sacrafice that last inch of turning radius for those wheels!
