Can some offer some advise? When I am backing out of like my garage or a parking space or whatever, when I turn my wheels there seems to be a rubbing/skidding type sound. It only happens in reverse and when I am turning my wheels. When I am driving forward and making turns there is no noise. Please advise. Thanks.

Are you running stock or do you have a lift with larger tires? I had this happen for a bit after my lift when I put my front bumper back on. I just needed to trim some more off. Basically, the only reason it would make noise in reverse was because of the way the tires would rub up on the bumper - obviously only on the turn because that's what caused the rubbing.

More info needed.

I've got 31x10.50s on stock rims, 2in lift and it rubs the sway bar. If you are running stock everything you shouldn't rub unless your springs are really, almost unrealistically, saggy.

We have same lift and tires and ours rubbed also. We crawled under it and each end of the axle has a bolt that limits the amount it turns by limiting the steering knuckle turns by it hitting the bolt. If you look they're on the front side of the axle. Ours had the jamb nuts tack welded on the bolts so we just pulled them out and got new ones and kept cranking them in until the front tires would turn as far as they could without hitting the sway bar or lower control arm and then tightened the jamb nuts down to lock it in place. I think the bolts are metric, 10 x 1.0 x 35 if I remember right.
