    You could try rims with a little less backspace, or set the steering stops so the tire doesn't hit.

    Maybe you should just stick to waxing the pretty little'89 pavement princess, you shouldnt even be making hard turns, it may smudge your Armoral! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    oh boy do I take it we have one of those among us? aka the guys who armorall everything and if they have leather or vinyl seats you are quite likely to slip right out of the truck? My one friend used to be an armorall freak, he made the mistake of doing his steering wheel a couple times lets just say he stopped doing that at least.

    Actually, I think what Beat 83 is trying to say is that his drag link is rubbing. I work with this guy, and we have the same set up 10.5 x 31's on stock alloy wheels. I dont have this problem, can someone help him so I dont have to hear him whine anymore! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Sounds like someones messed with the steering then. 31's were available stock, and if the backspacing isn't wrong (stock wheels you said) then someone has to have messed with something else.

    Perhaps someone put the steering shaft back on the steering box wrong. Been there, seen and corrected that. Amazing how much effort some people will put into doing something entirely wrong.
