    Hello all. I recently replaced my 3'' spacer lift with Eibach springs, 1/2'' spacer on the drivers side/1/4'' spacer on the passenger side, and 5100's set at .85. I also got new tires. I had MT Baja ATZ 275x18's. I am now running Nitto Terra Grappler 275x18's.

    My driver's side height stayed the same at 22 3/4'' and my passenger side dropped to the same from 23''. I noticed a lot of rubbing in reverse where there had been none before. I bought my truck with the initial set up and some minor trimming had been done. I did a little more and now I am worried I may have done too much.

    Can anyone tell me if I should worry about my fog lights being exposed to water being slung from the tires? Will I need to do anything to protect the exposed parts so I don't have a short.

    Thanks. I'm sure there are folks who have basically taken out the fender well piece that I trimmed...just wanted to know if anyone had any issues b/c of it. Should be an easy fix if it happens.
