Can you space out you shock standoffs? Did you use the caster ones? I would think the xt8 stockers would be the cuase as they are designed for the 14mm shocks.

You can space the front arms back to get more room but they will still hit the axles.As long as it's not causing any drag run it.I've run the ofna BB's and the 808 BB's and they all touch the axle.

get the Xray big bores when they come out. The front XT8's are the same as the rear 808's, the new rear XT8's are all new and much longer

The front's will still rub unless they changed the new truck arms to move the bottom of the shocks out or make the driveshafts thinner.I ran the 808 rears all around at the Psycho Nitro Blast and they rubbed and never had a problem.
