2" RDC lift Issues w/ tie rod rubbing

Alright guys got the 2" RDC lift on bike hasn't "ran" since its been on lol but long story short I have my Right tie rod rubbing on the 4x4 actuator... w/o lift I don't think it would however I havn't had time to take the lift off and try w/o the lift on, just curious if anybody else has had this issue before I go to RDC w/ the issue. and I have all new front end basically so nothing is worn out, tie rods, stem and bearing, ball joints, a arm bushings etc its an 07 but more of a 2012 model w/ all I have done put a few pics up tomorrow if i can

No 2012 parts all have been replaced w/ the proper new parts for the 2007 model lol, and the rods are in the proper way, threw the bottom of the stem and top of knuckles, I will get pics tomorrow. would tonight but I got the baby while the old lady is at work, and I think they will hit the exhaust if i flip the tie rods, these are the brand new factory upgraded tie rods w/ the improved ends and came w/ the bump stops on the steering stem.

Is the bike still in the air with the wheels off? If I remember right when I put mine in it did this too until I had the wheels on and bake on the ground, then it was fine.

alright guys turned shocked all the way down and no more rubbing... but no point in a lift if its nearly stock height lol, it sitting stock height with shocks turned down as it does on the 3rd notch... or close to it... i got it all pulled down right now looking over it all and replacing wheel bearings the right had a little play but not a lot but trying to eliminate anything that could be an issue... emailed rdc this afternoon to see if they had any pointers

Well as of swapping part by part around... Anybody ever seen or heard of a bent or warped steering knuckle? Would think they would crack but I think that is the issue from best I can tell, got to swap my new ball joints to this knuckle and get my new wheel bearing in to see for sure but in and tightened with an old wheel bearing in at full drop on the lift I'm clearing the actuator a good bit, this is with lift off though

My 09 did that too with the RDC lift. I took it off and just put in a 1 1/2 PVC spacer. All good now, no more rubbing....
