    You should be able to run them without additional mods, however, they won't fix the tire rub.

    The rubbing on sharp turns indicates you are rubbing the frame. That and you are running a wider tire at the same BS (backspacing). Granted, I haven't seen your truck but you should be able to see the rub marks.

    how much lift did it give? On these trucks you cant go past 3"(unless you go 5-6" w/ a drop bracket lift) without running into issues with UCAs, CVs, CV boots and such. Where is the rub at? pic?

    If you do get that lift, ditch the spacer.

    You may need to get a larger spacer then.

    Tundra, double cab.
    LED interior lights, stubby antenna, Pioneer in dash screen, good driver mod.

    larger spacers made mine rub worse and in alot more places! dont do it.
    either get narrower tires or you can chop the cab mount and re-weld it

    More lift will help some. Also have your alignment tech adjust the caster to as positive as he can get it. That will give a little clearance. Then trim the cab mount.

    Yea, that's the cab mount rubbage. The spacers won't do anything. As YotaDan said you may get some relief from the lift but I don't think it will be a "cure-all".

    If you currently have wheel spacers on the front, removing them would help alleviate some of that rubbing as long as the tires dont rub the UCAs after you pull them. If you dont have wheel spacers, then yeah, a little more lift will help, but as soon as you go offroad and stuff the tire a little that issue of rubbing the cab mount will be right back. So, to fully eliminate the problem, trimming and re-boxing of the cab mount is necessary. Heres a little info directly from AllPro on doing the mod on a FJ which has the same issue and would be basically the same for our Tacoma:
