Default Lifted wk suspension issues

Hi i am new to the site. I have done a lot to my 2005 wk including rebuilt the hemi and the trans. It is paid off and i wanted to start making it mine so i purchased the spacer 3 inch lift level kit. Suspensions are not my strong suit but I've put these kits on many trucks in the past.


On the phone the tech said "bolt on and go" which i figured i would have to do an alignment. But my spindles or steering knuckles are rubbing my strut at the bottom of the spring. Was supposed to be 3inch front and 2.5 inch rear. The front block measured over 2 inches which from what i hear is almost 4 inches lift on this type of suspension. What do i do to get my spindles to ride proper? Thanks in advance.

I used a kit from Heavy Metal which had the strut support forks in it which kept everything lined up. Good luck! and enjoy not many of the WK's get the recognition the deserve cause they are awesome lifted !
