cut away flares (like bushwackers) would probably be best for clearences, along with a properly sized wheel/backspace. If you dont want to cut you probably could do the leveling kit but no matter what you will need the right size/backspace wheel to keep from rubbing spring like crazy. My .02

If I went to 33's, I think I'd have to swap gears... 3.23's or something like that...

What size wheels are you running?? If I were you, I'd buy a leveling kit. They can be had for cheap, and after that... turn back and forth and cut any offending areas away...
