    Plz no angry people... I just joined forums... new to turning a wrench, and yes I read through the posts :) - I still have 2 questions.

    1. If I install coil overs in the front (3") and a leaf pack to the back, will I need to mess with anything else? For example steering or control arms?

    2. If I move up to a 32" tire will I need an offset wheel? I've heard that the tire just hang just a about outside the fender for a better ride.

    Thanks!

    Welcome.

    1) You don't automatically NEED anything else. but new Upper control Arms are recommended. You may have trouble getting the alignment correct if you don't

    2) You may have rubbing issues if you go to the bigger rubber...so you will need a an aftermarket rim or wheel spacers.

    wat?
    welcome first off....

    #1) UCA's will help get the alignment back into spec after the 3" lift.

    #2) u can fit a 32" tire stock (if you have a prerunner or 4x4). 265/75/16 or 265/70/17, depending on the stock options you have. and no wheel spacers needed if its 265 wide or less
