    I’m running the same lift and wheel set up. Do you get rubbing issues on the UCA?

    Um what exactly happend here? where you out wheeling or just daily driving? Are you saying this happened because you installed a 2" level kit? Would new bump stops have prevented this?

    What am I missing? It seems like everyone is running 16". My taco 08 4x4 has 17". I just ordered the 3/1 level/lift from Low Range Off Road. Once installed i'd like to go with new rims and wheels. Anyone know if a wider tire would fit? Stock is 265/65r17. Thanks all.. Sounds like 32s would fit fine, and 33s you may need to remove mud flaps and trim, which I don't want to do

    3in lift. 285X70RX17. 3/4"Bora Spacers. Softopper. Prinsu Rack w/ 40" (amazon) light bar. Spyder Headlights. LED strips installed under bed rails.
    I've got a 3" lift. Coil overs and blocks. Not sure of the brand - previous owner installed. I put 3/4" bora spacers on to fix some clearance issues with 285s that the dealership put on. Now, about 300 miles after spacers I've got some vibration.

    It vibrates from 20-25mph and then ~42-55mph. Any ideas what this may be? I've taken the spacers off and checked everything and then thread locked them back on recently.

    I have a 2012 DCLB, and was going to get the Bilstein's with 886 coils. But, I don't really want to spend $1,000+ after the UCA's and everything. So, I think I am going to just level it out by putting the Bilstein's at 1.75. So, my question/questions is... is it important to get the Bilstein's in the back as well, or do a lot of people only put them on the front? Also, right now my truck is exactly 1.75 inches higher in the back which makes me think I have the 4 leafs. I dont want it exactly even, because I never want it looking front high. If i want to add an inch-1.5 inches in the back, do I really want to add a 5th leaf (especially because I never haul anything), or should I put a block in? The little difference between the two makes no difference to me. I just want to know which will provide a better ride, and be better for the truck.

    Thanks guys.
