    Planning on upgrading my suspension to Bilstein 5100 on all fours and setting the front to 2.5. Thats the only part I'm positive about so far.

    I also plan on adding Toytec AAL either 1.5 or 2 for the rear. (anyone recommend one or the other?) Last I'm looking into Spidertrax spacers. I'm currently running stock wheels with 265/75 tires.

    My first question is if I'll have any rubbing with the billies and/or with billies and spacers together?

    Looking for any comments from anyone running a similiar setup.

    My truck is mostly used for daily driving with little to no off-roading. I've been reading that new UCA's are mainly needed for lifts over 3, but also wanted to verify from someone that I shouldn't need them for the setup I'm planning.

    Thanks!

    I would go for the 1.5" AAL for an even look, 2" if you want a little rake. I would not put wheel spacers on, no need for them, you will be much more likely to rub.

    Thats the direction i was leaning towards, since im not too crazy about the rake look

    I'm running this set up from Toytec (Ultimate) w/ the AAL, Diff spacer, sway bar relocator, and new UCA's. Running 285/75/16 with no rubbing after removing front mudflaps and a slight shave of the iner fender with a grinder - not visible....

    Also wondering where u bought it? If i do need the uca's i may end up getting a similiar setup as it wouldn't cost too much more

    Toytec - They are a vendor here on TW and give us a price break...

    I'm between 4 and 4 1/2 inches with the factory settings of the Eibach/Bilstein coilovers and the wheel/tire combo I have...from stock...
