Tires rub - raise van w/ Body washers front spring spacers quigley

Hi folks,

2002 Ford cruiser top E350 quigley here.

Just added 305 Toyo MT tires and on full lock front tires rubs at the rear of the bushwacker and front of the pinch weld.

Big ass hammer is my last resort.

Was wondering if anyone had success with adding spacers under the front springs.

Size and diameter of spacers did you use?


Thanks.

x2. Use a cutoff grinder or get a local body shop to do it... pretty straight forward. I did mine last year. Done right you'll never see it.

BTW - Great looking wheels/tires

Here is what I did. Raising the body won't help as you'll still hit the body when the suspension flexes.

Got it. Was worried about exposing the pinch weld and having an opening for water to enter.

Thanks Big River
