Default is this an issue?

hey guys as some of you may know i just got some 31s and i made sure they didnt rub in the thread on here but when i turn real hard my tires they hit my mud flaps and make a loud, bad noise but its only my mud flaps i guess. i am supprised that they even do that cus apperently 32 would fit with out any trimming but it almost seems like this could be considered rubbing. im guessing the rubbing is for flare or inside the wheel well. so ya should i do anything to fix it? i allready have tryed to pull the flaps off but with my tire there they is like no room. i might just cut them in half or something

Where is it rubbing? Is it something you can trim and not FUBAR the mud flaps?

He's 16, he has a lot to learn about his truck like one, stop crying, take your tires off, take the flaps off, put the tires back on, and drink a beer. Oh wait my bad take the last step off

Right Right you got me there. But, I never said I can't crank them I'm just worried that I might mess something up while doing so. And this is something I have not done before, he on the other hand already does but doesn't want to do it again because of the time it takes I guess but now he says he's going to do it and for me with the bars?, I'm going to keep them the way it is and flip my leaf springs it is? Or shackles? Either way flipping the back so it will lower a little and look leveled with the front end.

Won't that cause a problem getting the location right since the locator pins will now be on top of the flipped springs instead of underneath?

Also will the axle stay in place or slide since there will be nothing to "lock" the springs and axle in position?

to remove the mudflap on drivers side: Turn the wheel to the left. Remove mudflap. To remove Mudflap on passenger side: Turn wheel to the right. Remove Mudflap. Done.

DJM makes a Axle flip kit that puts a spring perch under the axle. If I'm not mistaken that will drop the back about 4 inches though, making the back lower than the front by a couple inches. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
