33\"s rubbing leafsprings

My friends scout has problems with his 33's rubbing the leaf springs when turning. I have heard about adjusting the steering bump-stops? If I need to, where would I find these, because all I can locate are the bump-stops above the axle. There called bump-stops right? Thanks.

Re: 33\"s rubbing leafsprings

There is "steering stops" on the back side of the front axle, a locking nut a bolt, just loosed the lock nut and back out the adusting bolt. Mine is set with the 33" tires about an inch away from the spring at full turn. The touch just enough to rub a little paint off the springs.
