Leveling Kits

I just put on a 3" leveling kit on my '05 tacoma and i have some metal rubbing in my front suspension when i turn at a slow speed. I can't figure out what it is, everything looks good in the suspension, nothing is broken or loose. Anyone with a leveling kit having problems like mine? i think it is the rack and pinion or the ball joint

X2. He might be hitting his UCA's. Either that or he just has to do some trimming if he did get bigger tires.

Might be your ball joints. They are put in a bind when you lift your front end.

32" tires? Those are pretty big. Are they on aftermarket rims? If so what size rims and whats their backspacing? Also, you havent trimmed up front at all?

If I do a 2.5" coil spring spacers in the front and nothing in the back on my 09 reg cab would 31s or the metric similar size work. If so how much of a space and gap would there be? too much, not filling or spot on. Also can I use my stock rims?

I have 2.5" front lift, OEM wheels, and 265/75/16 (31.65") tires. No rubbing.

Not sure what you mean about "space and gap". Are you talking about the space between the wheel arch and the wheel?
