Is this expected for an 01 as well? I have the same wheel/tires specs in the rear.

If you have the same 42mm offset as I'm running, I don't see how there could be any issue at all. I quite literally have around an inch of clearance on the insides of the wheels. The driver's side wheel is about flush with the outer fender, the passenger side is sitting just a bit inside the outer fender.

I'll probably get a panhard bar at some point this summer, along with a UCA, more to bring the pinion angle back into proper alignment.

There's no panhard bar (from the factory) on a 2001.

It's not that there's a big issue about it... it's more the desire to keep the rear end aligned, and not side load the bushings when you're just driving straight down the road. Anyway, I can hook you up on the new suspension bits when you're ready.
