65 chevelle tire rub...sway bar?

Need some help here please! I have a 65 chevelle with a stock front suspension with a 383 sbc. I have installed 2" cpp drop spindles, and love the stance. The problem now is, when I turn, the tires rub the top outside edge of the fenderwell. The car is originally a 6 cyl. car, so I think the springs might be too soft? I plan on taking the wheel offset in about 1" when i put the new wheels on this year, but im wondering where i should start before i do that. Will a 1 3/8" swaybar help along with gas shocks? Do i have to buy different springs? If so, how do i get the right stiffness? Any suggestions?
