    Man, now I know why my drag link boot had ripped off, it wasn't the pressure washer after all. And guess, what, I just tore the new one off. What can I do about this? I don't have money to get a lift and crossover anytime soon.

    wheel spacers or different backspacing on the rims. rims would probably be cheaper and safer too.

    could get some of those 1/4" wheel spacers if you have enough stud to be able to put your nuts back on safely and all. They are cheap and MIGHT be ennough to help clear. Otherwise you can adjust your turn stops on your axle so you can't turn quite as sharp but that might suck in a burban

    Not garunteeing they will work but might just be enought. For a cheap test unbolt a wheel and stick some 9/16 washers on 4 of the studs or so to measure out a 1/4" in and snug up the lug nuts and see if that helps. DON'T drive it like that but just to see if that would be enought to warrant the purchase of spacers.
