What happens when you hit a bump with the wheel turned?

The bump flattens and never bothers anyone again.

Nothing did some trimming in the rear and front was already slightly trimmed when I had 37s. Only rubs in reverse at near full lock on back of fender but plan to fix that soon.

6 suspension strut spacer style lift with bilstein adjustable struts set at mid length like 1.75 and a 1.5 add a lead in rear. Also added upgraded upper control arms longer and rebuildable/greasable

basically copied what stage 3 motor sports does what their 7.5 lift

Currently 3.73s with custom tuning from 5star worked descently with 37x12.5 but plan to go to 4.88 soon

really just wanted 37x13.50 for new tires but found a steal of a deal on these 38s they were about 300$ A set less than the 37s so went for it
