Those are your steering stops. It is a common issue with spindle lifts. You can grind them off.

Mine does it too, Fabtech sells steering stops to fix it that you bolt on under the control arm. I called them about it once and the guy told me to just go to 4wheelparts or somewhere and they can order them.

I'm not sure how much. IDK if you can weld or have any friends who do but if you search either on here or RPS theres a way to make your own by welding a bolt onto the control arm or something, I forget but if you search you'll find it.
