    Just looking for some answers on if Bilstein 5100's will help eliminate the small amount of rubbing I'm having. I recently grabbed some Pro Comp 7089's and wrapped them in Pro Comp Xtreme AT 265/75/16. I had to remove the mud flaps(no problem) but am still having a minor rub on the inside part of my fender. I was hoping to avoid any trimming and was wondering if Bilstein 5100 HA @ 1.75 would solve this problem or am I going to have to trim regardless. Any help would be much appreciated.:confused:

    All else being equal, you lose a bit of caster when lifting, which can help with tire clearance. If the alignment brings the caster back into spec, you will likely have to trim regardless. Keep in mind the wheel at full compression is at the same place (lower control arm hitting bumpstop) whether you have stock struts or 5100s.

    Are the Procomp wheels the same backspacing and width as the stock wheels? You can run that size tire on stock wheels and not have any rubbing issues.
