Left tire rubbing on bumper when turning right

BUMPER not fender.

Right tire is fine both ways, left tire hits bottom corner of bumper when turning right. Just lifted it Sunday and put wheels/tires on. After looking closer and measuring, the bumper is almost 2 inches closer to the left tire than the right tire. Never hit anything and bought it new. Any ideas why or best way to fix it?

Why? Ya cause your lift and tires. Fix? Trac bar is what centers an axle. If it’s not centered than that’s your culprit. Your “kit” should of included parts to correct. Once centered, if it rubs it’s because of wheel width and offset. The fix, assuming new wheels not an option, is cutting away the plastic inside fender wheels

What kit?

Sounds like your trac bar wasn't relocated or replaced.

Left tire rubbing on BUMPER when turning right

So apparently my brain was disconnected from my typing fingers. Not rubbing the fender. The BUMPER. Trac bar relocation bracket was installed and axle is centered left to right. The BUMPER is closer to the tire from front to back on the driver side with the tires pointing straight.

It's like you hit something head on with the bumper on the driver's side. Only I haven't. You can't really tell without actually measuring it.

Since the BUMPER is closer to the tire it rubs when turning right.

Stock bumper or aftermarket. God you make us pull information. Did you get aftermarket radius arms or 4 link? Are they adjustable, like threaded heims? So you axle is not straight or it’s your bumper. I’d want to figure that out. All else being equal you couod use spacers (washers) to space out the bumper on one side but that’s a duct tape style fix. You got issues but with no pics or description it’s a needle in a haystack. Try Archoil, Many a fools on here claim it fixes everything, literally everything. Might try

Sorry guys for not being clear. It's all a stock bumper problem, nothing else. Axle is straight and centered. The whole problem is the bumper.

I bet your bumper isn't closer, I bet your axel is pushed forward on one side. Are your radius arms adjustable kind?

Measure from rear tire to front on both sides to confirm the axle is straight.

KD Fabworks makes bumper spacers that will push the bumper out 3/4”. Not sure if that’s enough room for clearance in your application or not.
