    how bad are spacers really? the 3 inch ones from toytec? does it make the ride really bad? mostly drive on streets so would it really be all that bad?

    I know its not what you want to hear, but its the truth. Some people run them and never have a problem, but the common sense is there.

    yeah i have the revtek 3" spacer lift on and the ride is very stiff but i still have the stock shocks on and they dont have much travel so new shocks are in the future but the spacer lift could just be temporary before i can afford to get the coilover

    if i get the Bilstein Height Adjustable 5100 Series Shocks and set them to 2.5 would i be able to fit 32s maybe 33s wtih no rubbing? would i need to do something to the rear of the truck? sorry i am new to all of this.

    truck in question is a 03 prerunner extracab.

    i have the 285's on my truck and im still new to the size but i believe they are close to 33's? but with my spacer lift they rub when i turn all the way so i just have to remember not to turn the wheel hard over and just do an add a leaf in the rear.
