I have the offroad package. There aren't any suspension differences except for shocks absorbers. For the 315s you will need to crank the TBars quite a bit to clear them. Probably 2+ inches.

Yes, you will need an alignment after you crank them. It will throw off the caster and toe in of your fronts.

So far as rubbing goes, members that have them report that they do not rub, however, in a full articulated situation at full lock I suspect there to be some rub. For most driving conditions you should be alright. You will also need to have you speedometer recalibrated after the larger tires are installed.

Yeah, you can put them on and not crank them initially. They will fit, but will rub at full lock.

Yeah, just don't turn too sharp.

Its possible that there were raised. You are probably looking around 7-9 turns from a stock position to make it completely level. I actually didn't count my turns. I determined I wanted to lift the front 1.5". So I cranked each side a little and used a tape measure, measured from the ground to the top center of the fender on the body. Make sure all tires are equal air pressure and you are on a flat surface. You will need an 18mm deep well socket and something preferably 2-3 feet long for cranking. If you front is higher than 37" then it has been cranked. Right now my front sits at 39.5" I believe. So I mine is about 1" higher in the rear, which is what I wanted.

On yours I would start with about a 1.5" crank from the stock 37" position and experiment some to see what the minimum cranking height is to successfully clear the 315s.
