    6" Fabtech susp lift
    I've searched and searched and cant really find any info. I have a 2001 Tacoma Prerunner, and I'm going to be getting a 6" Fabtech lift installed. OEM rims are 16", but I want to run 15's. I've seen people running 15's on other forums and on this one, but I'm not sure if that's with this type of lift or not. If I can't, is there anything I can do to make them work? Thanks for any info and insight you guys can help with.

    Of course you can run 15'' rims. Why do you want a drop bracket lift though?

    Because it looks awesome! hahaha

    Do you think the spindles will get in the way? Does that change any with the Fabtech lift?

    Does the new fabtech spindles effect the rim in any way?

    A prerunner with a DB lift 'because it looks awesome'? Sounds like a mall crawler to me...
