Let the tires rub, it won't hurt anything.

i will agree the lower the better lmao

also a little tire rub just adds to the real ism and if keep the rig for a while and dont change it to often it will start to creek and make funny sounds like 1:1

weren't you getting better shocks? i think it's sagging because the tlt shocks can't handle the weight of your rig, do you have oil in the shocks?

Definetly upgrade your shocks, i'am not certain about the size of shocks for your set up, but in my xrc, which is 14" btw, i have maxx shocks upfront and savage limited travel shocks in the rear and it works great.
