    It depends on where it rubs. I'm guessing it would rub worse if you drop it back down .5".

    Skip combining the 3"spacer on the 5100's.

    Probably have to just trim the area(s) that it rubs.

    wat?
    u can run the 5100's set at 0" w/ the 3" spacer....or run the 5100s at 2.5" and ditch the spacer, but neither will get u to not rub. gonna need to trim. the 5100s @ 0" w/ the spacer should at least ride better than the stock shocks w/ the spacer

    Ya the only place it rubs is the body mount I was thinking of triming that any ways I hope it drives better after the new shocks cuz now u fill every little bump in the stering wheel and I can't stand it I bought the light racing ucas thanking it would help and it didn't so we will see

    It mostly rubs when backing up but not to bad and the tire come out to like a 32" so what would be a better ride billys at 2.5 or 0 and spacers

    I have 2" spacers on my 05' PreRunner. I just got 285/75/16 put on and they rubbed the same way stated above. Just shave in small areas till no more rubbing. Worked for me.

    Now a question about 5100's and spacers. Should I leave the 2" spacers and set the 5100's to stock or remove the spacers and set the 5100's to 2.5"? I want to do whatever will be smoothest. What does everybody think? Anyone have personal experience with this???

    Thanks
    Cheers
