You mention that the rims may be too close to the tie rod ends. How close is too close?

I'm going to be installing H&R springs soon and expect a rubbing problem to reoccur (the PO cut the springs and wheels would rub against the rear wheel well, this problem went away when I installed used stock springs).

Currently I have about 3/4" and am looking to come in about 1/2" - leaving 1/4" clearance, is this too close?
