Wheel well liner clearance 83 gmc - Front

Just installed 3" dropped spindles on my 83 gmc SB. Was planning on cutting the springs to get another 1.5". As it sits without cutting the springs there is about 3" of clearance between the tire and wheel well. Dropping it another 1.5" will leave it at about 1.5" of clearance. Without changing out the wheel wells there doesn't appear to be a way to fix that. Are others running with only 1.5" of clearance? Is there some kinda of trick I don't know about. I don't mind an ocassional rub.

Running 245/45/20.
