I'll see if I can get out and do that today. I know several guys run 335s on the rear and it just seemed tight. Thanks for the reply.

I thought about this as well. Even an eighth inch spacer plate would be something. I didn't cut my wheel studs yet so should be fine there. I bought the eastwood fender roller so may give that a shot as well, thank you.

Bear in mind, your shock compresses only so far which will limit the ability of the tire to go into the wheel well and rub. If no rub, your existing clearance and the extra 1/4" lip roll should do you fine.

Thanks for the reply. It's a triangulated 4 link, so should not have to much side to side.
