Brake clip rubbing on wheels

I have 15" wheels on a 2003 Fx4 Level II. I put on a Superlift suspension lift and heard the high pitched noise when the wheels turn of it scraping on the clips. Is there anyway to avoid this for any of those who have installed a Superlift? It's actually gouging the inside of the rim pretty bad. The clips are installed correctly and I even replaced them to make sure it wasn't because it was worn out or the wrong clip. Any help is much appreciated!!!

Use a 1" wheel spacer. That should do it.

Never heard of this issue before....

What's the backspacing on the wheels?

Any pictures of exactly where it's rubbing?
