    Mornin ya'all,

    I bought my '07 Taco with a 6" lift on it already, and found that I have a problem. As you can see in the pic, my tires rub on this bar (forgive my ignorance) and it's rubbing hard. I'm assuming that the person who put this lift in didn't fully know what they were doing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    That is your sway bar. It can be taken off, or you can change to some aftermarket wheels with different backspacing.

    Is it better to remove it or get an AM kit/spacers? Will it cause me problems in the long run if I remove it?

    What's the revision, or new part? I just got my lift a few weeks ago, I'm installing it as we speak, I'll be putting my sway bar back on in a few hours... How long ago did pro comp change the lift, do you think I have the new part?

    the revised part is pretty much a swaybar mount thats longer which lets you mount the swaybar upside down im sure that you have the new one unless it looks like the one he put in the pic
