a 3 foot lift would be funny looking.. a 3 inch lift should help a lot with rubbing issues.

Damn dude that's a big ass tire for no lift I have the same size and am lifted 3" it doesn't rub at all in daily driving but they do rub a little on rare occasions off road, I can't imagine the rub you would get from them with no lift.

It'll probably help a bit in normal driving. You'll need to clearance for those tires though, especially if you intend to drive off road.

I'm not a huge fan of spacer lifts. A lot of people get spacer lifts but then end up taking them off and buying a better lift. Save your time and money and get a good lift the first time.

For the money something like this is a much better option.

I have the Toytec Ulitimate lift kit and love it but it does cost a little more. Look around TW you will find all the answers you need

What's the backspacing of the wheels? If its not ideal, you'll still rub even after the lift.

Spacers go inside or on top of the coilover assembly. Spindles connect the uca and the lca on independent suspensions. Lift spindles basically move the wheel hub down lower in the front, providing lift.

Alright well we can use the offset and the rim width to calculate backspacing. What is the width of the rims?
