    So i just got my new 265/7017 BFG All Terrains put on today and i noticed that it is rubbing the UCA at full tilt. I currently have stock suspension but i will be installing a new setup which consists of eibach springs, 5100's set at .85 and 2" aal for the rear. SHould i be worried about the rubbing for will that rubbing go away with the suspension upgrade?

    Well I have the sport rims with 265/70/17 Geolanders, no rub. I do have 5100's at 1.75. But my last Tacoma (2005) I put the same size tire on it with no lift, no rub

    the lift will change the angle of the uca but im not sure if it will clear it from the tire. maybe . but i dont think that when you put the lift on it will change the point on the uca where the tire rubs.
