    Hi guys I got a 03 5 lug with stock rims/tires with coilover and leafs in the rear. I would like to put in coil spring spacers and 30-31" tires. How much of a mpg loss should I expect if I put tires a few inches bigger/ wider on??

    I would like to keep the factory ride and want a little more clearance and a more aggressive look what would you recommend for a lift setup if any??

    thanks!!

    The only lift I know of that will stil keep the factory ride is a spindle lift. WHen you preload the coil spring to achieve lift, you are going to stiffen the ride. As for mpg lost, you shouldnt lose more than 2 mpg. Be sure that when you are checking milage, you are accounting for the increase in tire size. If you dont you will get lower than normall figures. :)
