increasing your shock and/or spring rate can eliminate the problem. my car had a stock 4 link rear and also a stock sprung IRS rear, both of which had a huge amount of travel.

however, there should be room for the tire to fit up inside the fender and the limit of travel should be taken with a rubber bump stop on the suspension. this is important because it softens the limit of travel- if it is too abrupt the wheel will act as it is has no suspension and may instantly lose traction.

if the tire is hitting, you may need to change the backspace of your wheels to move them where there is more room, or use a narrower tire if there isnt more room on one side. i would not try to shift the 4 link suspension, it needs compliance in the bushings to work properly.
