    Just do some trimming instead so the tires don't rub. Body lifts sucks, and 6" is too much lift anyway.

    :rofl: @ 3" body lift. Dude 33's require 5 minutes of your time to make fit. FFS put a body lift on it, listen to it squeek all day long, feel is create body roll, make your frame show like a retarded chevy truck, and soon enough the BL wil puncture through the rusty tacos.

    .02cents..

    BTW hammering is free (unless you don't have the hammer) Oh and it's a good work out :D

    where exactly are you rubbing?on your frame when at full lock,UCAs,bumper? you should try doing some trimming first it may be all you need, wheel spacers or new wheels might get you out of the woods to.

    agreed with the rest of the guys. no need to go spending extra money to get the rubbing stop, trimming priceless.
