Default I made the jump to 33's; now I have rubbing on the sway bar

I had 285/70/17's installed yesterday on Sequoia 7.5x17 wheels with a +15 offset. Today I had an alignment with the goal of keeping the tires off of the body mounts. (Initially there was rubbing.) That seems to have worked, however I now notice that I am rubbing on the relocated sway bar (via Icon kit) at full lock. I don't know if I was rubbing there before the alignment as I was trying to avoid full lock at that time. Is this rubbing something others have experienced? Can it be adjusted out with a different alignment? Is the geometry of creating space around the body mount mutually exclusive with creating space at this point?

Your offset seems high. I would think for a 7.5 it would be closer to 0 or very slightly positive to get the proper backspace.

That may be the case. I believe these are the same size and backspace as the FJ 17" wheels, and I thought a number of people run 285's on those without spacers. Maybe there's a trick to it, or maybe I will need to modify the steering stops.

Also I think the on 4th gens people got rubbing on the sway bar. Maybe some of them will pipe in.

You may have to use a bolt on spacer

I see that I also have a small spot of rubbing on the frame to the inside rear of the passenger tire. Not the body mount at the back, but inside toward the engine bay. I really hope I can take care of this with steering limiters.

It's weird how your very same setup will work on some rigs but not all, as your finding out. I don't think you could adjust the alignment enough to get rid of the rub and if the vehicle drives good now I wouldn't want to mess with that. What you're going to have to do is add a little material to the steering stops where the knuckle meets the LCA. I would start with a minimum amount, like 1/8", to avoid losing the tight turning radius.

FWIW, I run 255/80/17 (33") on some 5th gen TE wheels and have no rubbing in your mentioned areas but it does come close so I think the additional width of the 285's are the difference. I do really like the super tight turning radius my 4th gen has over my 5th gen. I can run Black Bear pass with only doing a couple 3-point turns.
