Note where it rubs, have a hammer ready and a source of heat, a Heat gun works best but can certainly be done with a Torch, just be careful to heat not melt, Anyways, you heat until if gets soft and take the hammer and push it back with the hammer. (The end of hammer, hold it by handle) Keep holding it until it cools, this will make it stay where you put it. Heat some more and do all of the area, let it cool each time.

When you are done. You may want to drill a hole and put a screw in it. If you do, put silicone on the screw and into the hole before you insert it.

That should take care of it. By the way the alignment will be off since you got new tires.

I've got the 3" Calmini lift and 295/75/r16's which are about 33.5". I got the fender liner pushed back a little but they still rub somtimes.
33.5" is a big tire and you are going to have trouble with rubs without a BL. The Calmini lift is at max 2.5" if not less. And that 2.5" is in the front only. The rear is less as the kit is more of a leveling kit.

Where is it rubbing? The fender, the frame, etc...?

Do you have a shrock front bumper?

Ah, now I see why you are having problems. Not to point out the obvious but the there is a reason why a 2WD lift is no meant for 4WD.

Yeah, but I had to be greedy and get that little bit extra. Calmini told me it would work and to fix the problem I'd need to cut the lip off the UCA. I'm kind of scared to do this because I'm afraid of weakening the arm. I think I should have went with the coil lift instead of the spacers.
