    looking to lift my Taco and the local shop recomended Icon adjustable coil over and 1" over for the rear. They tell me this should give me clearance for 33x11.5 on 8" wheels with 5" backspacing. Anybody running anything similar or have any comments

    You will be able to fit those tires on 3" coilovers with a 1" lift in the back. Since they are only 11.5" wide, it will minimize any rubbing (if you even have any). It may be a good idea to get a wheel with 4.5" backspacing so it sticks out a little further, this will also help avoid rubbing,

    btw, Icon coilovers are an excellent product; many people have them on here and they all love 'em.
