I bet it's rubbing the knuckle where the tie rod bolts?
Barons did that and he had to buy hiems and make a new tie rod and do a little grinding.

hmmm idk. it was sitttin in a field and the guy sold it to me fer 200 bucks.Put a new flux capacitor ignition modulator dilly on it and she runs grrrrrrreat.Put the H1 wheels on it and the brake caliper bolt grinds inside the wheel( barely).Ripped front clip off,ripped bed off,gonna put lil tubing on it and go tear it up at the drags.Then maybe add to it fer next year maybe.Its got a dana 60 rear and HD dana 44 front.Main thing is looks ratarded with wheels sucked in tht far.So I need some spacing.Found some on ebay fer 89 bucks a pair but was in search of a saweet deal.if I cant find by end of feb Ill just order them got lots to do by then anyway.Keep an eye open if ya dont mind.

Look around and see if you can find some dually front hubs....I dunno about the various years, but i think the dually front hubs from an 80's ford dana 60 would fit......also check out later model dually pickups 2wd, and 4wd. Most of the big three duallys now use a "dually adapter" that bolt to the single front wheel studs...they are about 3.5" spacers IIRC. Just beware of the Ford Stupid Dutys front adapters, they will have the oddball metric lug pattern instead of 8 on 6.5. Dulaneys and Southwest salvage in Amarillo would be your best bet for those parts. I would be looking for the wheel adapter for a 2000 or so dodge 4x4 if I were you. Good luck...wish I had what you need, as I need a windshield..lol

H1's are gonna need ALOT more than a 1/4" spacer to clear your Tie rod..You're gonna need about a 2" spacer per side(maybe a little more)..But I bet you could come up with the already mention Dually set up for alot cheeper than new spacers..I have h2's with a 12.5 tire and I am almost rubbing on my high steer arms( they are angled in more then the stock knuckle tie rod arm)..If I had my Tie rod mounted in the stock location it would be all over the tire...
