Ideally you need 3" lift
You could have 2" lift if you're willing to trim arches and bumpers
Do you have wheel spacers or - off set wheels ?

Hi Jack thanks for your reply as in my original post when I noticed a broken spring this is where it all went wrong I bought 3" front springs as I thought it was raised 3" but it was the body it was raised 3" so took body lift of rifhtened it back down to normal size then got springs and shocks for rear and shocks dor front 3" shocks so fitted all the springs and shocks took for a drive pulling severly right now im told i need to get adjustable panhard rod and steering rod to correct this and now body is back down tyres are hitting arches.
P.s it does have wheel spacers and another think I bought it with the body lift

So now you have a complete 3" spring and shock lift
You need adjustable panhard rods front and rear
Cheapest you can get are from Richard Fox
When fitted measure from the tyre or wheel rim inside edge to chassis rail
Use this method to get your wheels sitting level with car body

This may stop your rubbing issues
Maybe will need to get tracking done at this point
