    Since the Leeper thread was closed before I could get all my questions answered, I will start a new thread.

    I was thinking of ordering some aftermarket adjustable shocks, but had a question about backspacing on my wheels. I have 20x9 XD Monsters with 5.71" backspacing. Leeper recommends a 5" backspacing for these. If I install these shocks, will I have rubbing issues?

    I understand they will probably rub on the UCA, but wouldn't the larger wheel size make this less of a problem than the recommended 16" wheel?
    If I adjusted the shocks to only 1.5" of lift or so, will this help with the rubbing issue?
    Any help is much appreciated.

    I don't think anybody wants to deal with the leaper situation. Lot of bad air there.

    Really depends on what size tires you want to run.

    I dont think lifting it will make a difference, the recomended back spacing is to clear the calipers and uca
