    Well I changed the whole front suspension on my 2013 tundra but my tie rods are still rubbing on the inside of my wheels when I make sharp turns anyone else have this problem before?? Also these are the factory wheels that are rubbing they didn't start rubbing until after I lifted the truck .

    Before all the control arms and tie rod is level with the ground while driving, after u lift the truck, everything is in an angle, so there’s less space. Sometimes an alignment could help if it’s just a little rub, or you could change the offset to give you more room.
    It’s depends how much it’s rubbing

    I was wondering the same thing. An alignment should be done after lifting the front. Maybe that could be the issue?

    I did an alignment after I lifted it and one after I did the front suspension and still have the same issue . It's making a scratch in the wheel but only when I make sharp turns or pulling out of my driveway I saw some spacers online between 1" to 2" inches what do you'll think I should go with??

    When you say you replaced the whole suspension, did you also replace the tie rod ends?

    Holy shizzle my nizzle! Quick n dirty fix would be to grind that outer tie rod or get a spacer. Or you may want to get the Coachbuilder steering (tie rod) kits, which are straight (doesn't have the curve like the stock ones do).

    if its a RC 4 to 6 inch, try switching the tie rods around, driver to passenger and passenger to driver. install instructions show the tie rods installed back on with the curve near the ball joints facing the knuckle instead of the wheel.

    if that doesn't help do what Cruzer suggests.

    They look curved to avoid the wheel, just R and L appear on the opposite sides

    Any reason why your tie rod is coming in from the top vs the bottom?

    This would solve your issue if required. But without the details on your setup…it is a crapshoot…
