To cure your problem; don't make right turns.

New shocks installed

I just got back from getting the Bilstein shocks installed. Ride is better and sway is reduced. Tire store says the only tires that he can replace the front 2 with would be the 230 80 22.5 Mish. $300 more. I think I will take the advise and trim the fender were it turns into the tire. ( It's already split from tire rubbing. ) And then we are off to Roan Mountain this Wed. Let all know how we fair.

On the road atlast.

Oversizing tires can cause problems. I put 305/70 22.5's on our DSDP to replace the 275/70 22.5's that it originally came with. I also replaced the 7" wide steel rims with 8.5" Alcoa's. I don't have any rubbing problems when the suspension is aired up. However, I have to make sure the tires are pointed straight ahead when I let the air out or I'd wipe out the fender flares. I could relieve the stiffening rib but then I'd probably get fatigue cracks!
Good thing the OP checked for "kissing" on the rear as that can be a big problem too.
