Im BACK! and a suspension question

So I doubt most of you remember but we bought a 150 kept the ranger for my lil bro to drive..Well I had the hardest time parting with her even after having a 5.4l v8 under my foot vs my 3.0...soo I am back and starting to continue building my baby where I left off =D

Anyways here is the dilema.

Alright I have fiberglass on the front and pulled sides with 35's. I had fabtech spindles up front but sold them and now I have 35's on stock spindles. I know I have 15x8's but I am not super sure on the backspacing.

Anyways, my front rub pretty bad, but I do not want my front end sitting way up with lift spindles again. I am a full time student trying to find a job to save for my front end..have some ideas in mind, probably not LT as I do not need that. Probably some BTF uppers and 2.0's in the front..

my question is how can I get my front tires out about 2" a side without LT. Is running a different size backspacing just as bad as putting wheel spacers on? Are there any companies that fab a spindle at stock height that puts the wheel out about 2"s?

Thank you for any input. 03 Edge 3.0 stock suspension, blocks pulled in rear.

Any more info you need I can supply.

Thanks again.

Reference w/ spindles..probably how it is going to end up looking again.
