I bit off way too much to chew, and now I'm stuck. My truck has 31x10.5 R15s and it has no lift. I turn my wheel more than 1 full rotation (~30% turn) i rub. If i hit any bump, i rub. curbs are horrible, turns suck, my body is taking a beating (fender flares are going to solve the body blemishes) and i dont know what to do. I bought the coil spacer and AAL from Fat Bob's garage, and also the U-bolts from ToyTec and we ran into three problems when trying to install them.
1. The AAL was WAY too arched to even mildly look like it would fit, even when we had the truck up on the lift. It was obvious it would not work
2. The U-Bolts (which were specified for the 2004 5-lug) were rectangular, not actual u-bolts. Since the 04 5 lug is axle over leaf, it requires true U shaped bolts. Wouldnt work there either
3. I couldnt get my damn springs compressed. We bent a high quality compression tool (30 year old MAC tool, built when shit was really good) and we broke one stud holding my shock in place. We never even saw the top of the coil.
Ive driven 7000 miles on these tires already, i want to fix this. Im thinking a new leaf pack but what do i do for the front? Ride quality does not matter to me.
