Default 3" lift problems!

Ok, so I decided to install my 3" lift over the weekend by myself. Well I finally got it all done after many headaches (rusty bolts suck) and I thought everything was fine. Well it's not, I put 31x10.50s on it and it rubs on drivers side but not passenger. Also, when I go to open the passenger door, it hits the quarter panel..Any input would be greatly appreciated. Plan to post before and after pics when I get all the bugs worked out. Thanks in advance guys!

No I didn't take the fender off...the tires aren't rubbing on the control arms, they're rubbing the fenders, but it's only when you cut the wheel to the left. I think the fender got pushed back somehow.

What all front end parts did you install with the lift? Just wondering if your front axle is centered.

It was the rough country 3" lift. Put new shocks, coils, stabilizer bar drop brackets, and lower control arms

Offset is 3.75 and I did the drop brackets for track bar. It came with the lift kit.

Are you still rocking factory flares? Might have to do a little trimming.

Yea I am, looks like that's what I'm going to have to do. What do you think about my fender being pushed back? Do I need to take it off and check my brackets or what?
