spacer in rear of tereflex leveling kit?

Hey Guys; I have a 2013 jk 2 door with a tereflex performance leveling kit installed ( 1" longer coils in rear and 2" longer coils in front) I'm running 285/70r17 on 4.5 back spaced rims. While riding on beach this weekend with 2 daughters in back my tires hit my fender flares on a few occasions on bumps that seemed pretty small. Is this normal or should I have added something else to kit such as longer shocks or longer bump stops? Also what else will I need to add if I put in spacers in the rear.
Thanks for any input

im running the stock shocks and no spacers that im aware of. the kit is the one with replacement coils. I had my daughters in the back seat maybe weighing 250 lbs combined, the thing that bothered me is it never bottomed out with the factory coils and now im even a inch higher.

Pretty sure it would have on the stock coils if flexed right. I have the TF spacer levelling kit (2" F, 1" R). with 33's on 3.75BS and I rub slightly when flexed with no weight and no seat in the back. This is on a 2dr sport stock coils and shocks.

Longer shocks arent going to do anything for you. You don't want the shocks to act like a bumpstop.

Were you articulated? Or were these just bumps in the sand and you could hear something banging?

Does the Jeep sit level with no weight? You are running a large 32" tire...at 4.5bs I would imagine you would have to be pretty twisted to rub fenders.
