    Yea..where is it exactly rubbing?? 235s are SKINNY tires. You should have not issue..

    and skip those silly spacers. Get real ones like Allpro or Spidertraxx ones. 1/4'' isn't gonna help anything.

    Sounds like if its only rubbing when ppl are in it tho that your suspension could be shot...

    Yea It feels like suspension might be the answer, but I'm not sure what all I would have to replace. Never done anything like that can't I just buy new shocks?

    lol no, shocks don't provide lift. They just dampen the springs. If you suspenstion is really saggy, you'll need new coils and leaf packs...and shocks. not a cheap thing..but well worth it!...you might regret getting that size of tire tho if you decide to lift it..haha

    Hub centric spacers work great. I have 1.5'' allpro ones. I also spent the extra 25 bucks to get the extended thread lugs. Almost a must for the front wheels..not so much the rear but better safe then sorry.

    but i doubt your rubbing the frame. You are running stock height and skinnier then stock..

    You have to find your set of taller coils and a matching strut to go with it..and then possibly an add a leaf in the rear to get the height matched all around. Have to do some research on 5 lug lifts..theyre out there and it shouldnt be too hard for ya, will definitely benefit from it
