Steering Stops

I just installed 35's on my d60 - 98' 2500 quad cab using 05' 17" factory alloy wheels. I have 2" spacers up front so clearence is fine, but am rubbing the control arms on tight turns. My thought after looking at the outer knunckles is to drill out the center of the steering stop pad, and tap it for a bolt to adjust the stops distance, just to keep the tires off the arms. I hate the tires sticking out look, this also saves some stress on the wheel bearings. Has anybody done this, any other ideas at a cheap fix, before i design custom control arms.

Adding steering stops will be the cheapest solution. How wide are the 35's? 12.5"?

12.50 on 17x8's. I had a feeling on this, just wondering if it had been done before. i'll drop some pics when completed. Thanks...
