Default Need to raise the front suspension of Mahindra scorpio CRDe

Need your guidance to raise the front suspension of a Mahindra Scorpio Crde
The idea is to fit my 33inch BF goodrich tyres, the rear seems to fit in well without a lift. But the front tyres seems to establish contact with body at steering point.

I've heard spacers would help.
If not will have to implant a lift kit.
Could any recomend a resolute.

I guess 33 inchers are too big for scorpio's wheel wells. Even my 28 inch goodyear wranglers fouled with body and i had to weld off a small part behind the bumper to fit them without fouling.

Can you post some pics as to where exactly the front tires are fouling with the body?

i have a set of 31inchs too, which i tried and that too was touching the inner side of the mud flap as you steered in.
The mechanics also recommended metal spacers on the hub, but was not too sure..if to go ahead with it

Yours is a CRDe and this must have come with 16" rim/alloy. Ideally 31x10.5 suits the best. I had put the same from Bridgestone Dueler A/T in my 15" alloys. It only scrapes the steering arm on lock-to-lock turn.

i too was the opinion that 31 suits best, and yes! it scrapes on extream steer angles.
also noticed the clearance was not much from the fenders and could touch the upper mud gards on bounces!
