Exclamation Rear Stabilizer Bar Interference

I have a 92 XJ Laredo and I just put in rear 3 inch blocks and my the ends to my rear stabilizer bar are rubbing into my tires. Before the 3 inch blocks my stabilzer bar ends sat just inside of my inner rim on my wheel. Now since the bar has moved up the ends are creating some damage to the tires. If anybody has a solution for this that would be great.
I have thought about:
1 getting washers for each lug screw to space the tire out just that much more
2 getting wheel spacers (really dont want to spend all that money)
3. removing rear stabilizer? effects unsure of though

3 inch blocks? You're just begging for axle wrap. A much safer 3" budget lift can be made with an add-a-leaf (like the Rubicon Express 2.5" leaves on this page) and an extended shackle.

And you can remove the rear swaybar with no ill effects (Up-Country models actually came from the factory without one).

Re: Rear Stabilizer Bar Interference

never use washers in between a wheel and the hub. That is not safe, I would go with the Add A leaf like previously stated. The blocks will cause you all kinds of problems. You can remove the rear sway bar but I would still do something about those blocks.
