    Hello to the 05+ Tacoma novices out there. I am looking for some experienced knowledge out there regarding my 07 Tacoma 4dr LB 4L 4x4. I am currently running the stock 17"x7.5" alloys wrapped in 265..17 BF A/T KOs with a 3" Toytec leveling kit.

    I want to upgrade to a select 18"x9.5" (4.75" BS) Pro Comp alloy. I intend to put the same BF A/T KO tire on these wheels (275/65 or 75ish/18), so no aggressive off road tire wanted.

    My question relates to the fact that I am confident I will clear the calipers, however I am worried about rubbing inside the front wheel wells while turning. So I am looking into Toytec adjustable coil overs (Bilstein 0-3") for the front. My intention would be to stack the spacer I already have up front on top of the adjustable coil overs an adjust them so I get an extra inch or two to prevent any tire contact in the wheel wells.

    I understand that I dont want to lift too much without dropping the differential down like the common Fabtech/Pro Comp 6" lifts with stock A arms. I don't need 6" of lift and don't want to go through that installation process.

    So, to those that know, is this a wise idea to stack my 3" spacer on adjustable coil overs to get a little more room for the 18s? I would most likely end up adding a leaf in back to balance the look at some point.

    Thanks to those willing.

    I don't think that would be a good idea!

    You're right. Idea would be bad for the CVs. Thanks.
