Re: question here about my 33\'s

well you didnt fill out your profile, so we dont know what you drive. if you put 33s on a VW bug...yeah its probably going to be a bit rough on turning. its a 3/4 ton, and i assume chevy or you wouldnt have posted here.
so assuming a chevy 3/4T and assuming its from the tears 88-98 then you might be rubbing depending on wheel width. they can rub on frame and can rub on fenders. if you do have a 3/4T from these years, get a 18MM socket and rachet and tighten your torsion bars up so the truck raises about 1" at this height you wont damage anything in the fornt end and you'll likely solve the rubbing problem

yeah, you might have rubbage. also, i doubt this is your trouble, but bigger tires equals greater resistance, so you just might be noticing that a little bit.
