spidertrax may help if you're rubbing at the frame by moving the tire/rim out some. are they cranked up all the way? that may not be the best option but hey it'll get you to 5" if they (and your cvs) aren't maxed out.

Since the RCD lift uses the stock coils, it's not surprising that you still have the "taco lean". As malander mentioned, a thin top-plate spacer is the way to go.

sorry. I assumed that when I asked about "clearance" i figured you were trying to clear tires. top plate spacers are debatable but i dont think a 1" top plate spacer would be suicide for your truck depending on how hard you wheel. you will need longer studs up at your shock mounts though

Just take your measurements for each side and divide by two. A top-plate spacer will lift twice it's thickness.

If it's in front, get the toytec 1/4 spacer... it will give you around 1/2 of lift or near of it. 1/2 will give you almost 1 inch. This is what I have done to mine.

For rear you should be good since you have the stock leaf pack. With my All pro leaf there is a bit of a lean but nothing to bother...

top plate spacers do not affect ride quality. my 1/2" top plate spacer was actually a little less than 1/4" tall but yielded 1/2" lift. so a spacer thats less than 1/2 inch for the driver side and less than 1/4 inch for the passenger side. i know lifts aren't stackable but i feel like i've seen small top plate spacers stacked as long as you use longer studs you *should* be okay but it would be nice if someone else would chime in on that. check out toytecs top plate spacers

so if i go 1/2 on drivers side and 1/4 or passenger side i should be ok. i also have an aal plus the 4 inch block. i left the aal in because i haul a dirt bike lots and pull a boat so i didnt want it to sag.
