Default Wheel spacers

How much wheel spacing should I probably need in the front of my 98 blazer in order to keep from scrubbing the sway bar when I turn?

How wide of a tire, and what size rims are you running?

Stock sizes shouldn't rub. If they are, you either have something bent, or need an alignment

What is the backspacing on your rims? That works out to just under 10.50". I'm running 10.50s on my truck, with a 4.5" backspacing, and I have no rub on the frame or sway bar at all. Stock 4wd rims have 6" BS, so it seems like moving the tire out 1.5" does the trick
