    I am wanting to put a small lift on my tacoma, but also want to keep stock wheels. I am running 265/75 16 right now. I am thinking that a lift will cause the top of the spindle to be pushed closer to the tire, it's already pretty close.

    Is my thinking correct on this or am I off on my thinking.

    I really don't want to run spacers on my wheels either.

    Thanks for the help.

    I am wanting to put 5100s on the front.

    There are tons of people with that lift/tire combo without using spacers. I'll be doing it myself shortly, actually, also using 5100's.

    You'll be fine with the 5100s, no wheel spacers needed.

    I went with the 5100 set at 1.75 with the rear leaf spring TSB. And the truck ended up looking level, you can check out almost everyone else's one out there and they'll tell you the same thing.

    5100s work great with stock 16" or 17" wheels, no spacers needed. Post pics when you're done :)

    I had mine set at 1.75" originally to level out from front to back. Worked great according to the tap measure but when I was towing or hauling anything I would be nose-high so I lowered them to 0.85".

    Cool, I don't see many people with the wheels I got and it would be my luck that these wheels had different spacing.
