    I backed off on my pre-load on my extended travel coilovers--trying to follow your recommendations--and mounted 3/4" spacers and trimmed the front area of the fender skirts but I'm still getting some major rubbing (sounds like the sipes on the 285x75x16 MTRs rippping into the wheel well plastic). I was told by you that the TRD wheels with 4.5" backspacing would work fine with the stage 4 setup and 33s but after backing off the preload it looks like my front tires are closer than ever to the rear portion of the wheel wells. Obviously everything is fine out back (other than the leaf springs are already flattened out heading to sagville). Any advice on the front end?
