You could get a set of wheel spacers, depending on how much backspacing you need to remove. I would use one thicker than 3/8" thick myself.

You can pick up travel limiters from Mustangs Unlimited or 5.0 Resto. They are small spacers that clip on to the shafts of your R&P unit. Basically you loose a little of the turning radius because the wheels don't turn as far keeping them from contacting the control arm.
