1st Gen. Rubbing Problem with Fabtech Lift

A buddy of mine just bought a 2003 reg cab taco 4cyl 2wd. The back is stock. But the front has fabtech uca's and it looks to have fabtech shocks and coils. He has 235/75/15 tires.

He is rubbing the uca's at turn on both sides. Also the back of the tires rub the frame. How can this be fixed? Im thinking just spacers...

Any help? Are the tires too wide? They are not that big. Thanks a lot!

Sounds like a backspacing issue to me...

i dont think it's a rubbing issue... those tires should fit and the stock wheels will be fine of course... look into the suspension maybe?

sounds like its a 5 lug mini with a Fabtech lift for the older 5 lugs...

considering stock tires on that should be 215-70-15 or something like that, the wheels need to have less backspace than stock to fit those bigger tires...

check out some spacers fo sho...

thanks mike.

thanks to all others as well. I will let him know.

If anyone knows the best spacers to buy please let me know. I checked spidertrax. They dont seem to make them for it.
