question about my coils

Ok so I converted my ranger into a coil over ranger... coils have been on for about 4 months and i love it!... Now i have noticed that when i cut hard in either direction my brake calipers make contact with the coils. This may be a bad thing while wheeling when the calipers are moving with the wheel while turning... Anyone have any ideas how to fix the problem?

make new brackets to tuck the coilovers more inward. or increase spring rate so you do lean as much. or just stop turning really sharp.

Make a turn stop? I believe Villen did that on his setup to keep thinks from contacting.
