Uh, take the spacers out?
Dremel the stud holding the rear bumper clip and the guard liner where the rear bumper meets the guard.
It all depends on where you're rubbing.

If you're rubbing in the rear it could be caused partially by the fact that you're running a spacer. If you remove that (assuming you have enough inner clearance) you have a better chance of not rubbing. What are the wheel and tire specs?

Knowing where you're rubbing will also help a great deal.
