I would say it's probably your radius arms. What size tire do you have? My dad has to run a spacer with the 265/75/16s in order to get them to clear the radius arms. I have greater offset wheels and 255/85/16s, and I don't rub on steering lock.

Agreed. Most likely tire lugs on the radius arm.

Agreed as well. There are steering stop nuts on the swivel balls you can adjust to stop the wheels from turning do far.

Yeah, my '95 rubs the radius arms at full lock with 33s.  Solution:  just don't turn that tight  :)

+1 to tire, radius arm. Easy to fix, bolts on opposite hub assembly limit the amount of travel, back them out until.tires don't rub. (works up.to a certain size e.g. Chucks 265's need spacers (?) but this works for my 245's...).

Hey Matt,

 

Sure, here is driver's side which adjusts lock towards passenger..

And here is Passenger side which is controlling lock towards driver's side...

By backing these out they will decrease the travel of the steering by hitting the stops. Adjust so that the rear of the opposite tire clears the radius arm...

 

Easy fix - instant gratification.  have fun!

My rrc's currently go 255/70's on and are also rubbing on full lock. you should be able to confirm that it it this, as you should be able to see the rub marks as a nice shiny bits on the arms behind the wheels.

My Tires are due a change and am planning to move to narrower 245/70's to help, but will prob need to adjust the stops as well.
