    3" rough country lift, 1.25" wheel spacers, smittybilt roof rack, 4 kc lights in front, 2 kc light in rear, ax and shovel mount
    i have a rough country 3" lift which was nice until my 32" tires wore down and i decided to go to 33" goodyear dura tracks. (which do awesome offroad) but when i put them on the tires rubbed on my upper control arm so i got 1.25" spacers ignoring that they're terrible for my wheel bearings. almost a year later just had to replace my wheel bearings, so i want to get a different lift to eliminate the spacers any suggestions?

    also im a 19 yrs old and in college so money is kinda scarce for me, please help

    You need new wheels with different offset to push the tires out and away from ucas...

    Best lift for you since your on a budget would probably be get some Bilstein 5100s for the front and set them to 2.5 and maybe throw in an aal in the rear. Check out Toytec lifts. They have everything from just shocks to complete icon lifts and all kinds of goodies. down south motorsports has some good deals too. New wheels might be a good idea too.

    Thinner wheel spacers like .75 or 1"
    Bora comes to mind

    I have bora .75 spacers on my truck and havn't had any issues with bearings...but i only have 42k on my truck. Bad thing with spacers under 1.25 is you have to replace or "modify" existing wheel studs.

    agreed, you already have about 500 into the original lift and spacers, so dumping another 500 into another partial kit seems like a bad idea. save up and go for a complete kit with no spacers and a good offset wheel

    Depends on the offset, a 4.5 bs should be alot better for the wheelbearings than a 1.25 spacer, although i use to blow out wheelbearings on my ranger with the 10" wide rims .. but that is a whole other story.

    a question not asked is how many miles did you get out of the original bearings? I still say if you got a decent life out of the original bearings, then hold off pulling the trigger do alot of research for what you need and build it up slowly, you"ll get a great result and have exactly what you want.

    A different lift isn't going to help with tire clearance/rubbing. You need wheel spacers or new wheel with different backspacing/offset. The lift will not help with bigger tires.

    this ^^

    also, OP, dont go with the procomp lift..

    It DOESNT have blocks, just an AAL, but it still is garbage. ask me how i know.

    the coils sagged, the bushings in the shocks lower eyelet blew out, the AAL is stiff as hell.

    save your money if you wanna go with a different lift, but, as far as your rubbing.. new wheels with the correct BS is what you need.
