    I have a 2012 TRD 4 door off road.

    I have the 5100 front and rear and 1" spacers for the rear. I'm trying to just lift by just adding the 5100". I've hard that if I just lift it 1" I'll be good. But now I have these rear spacers I want to use. If I use it my rear will be hirer then my front. Here is the math

    Front stock hight 34.5 + .85 from the 5100 =35.35 in

    The rear stock is 35". Right now if I just lift the front it will be level.

    If I add the 1" spacer ill be at 36" and the rear will be hirer.

    So I did the math if I want to use the spacer ill have to lift the front to the 2nd level and its 1.75 in. here's the math

    Front 34.5 + 1.75=36.25

    My front will be a 1/4 in hirer. I don't this a 1/4 in is that notes able. So my question is if I lift the front 1.75" will it rub. As of now I'm running stock tires. When I need to replaces it ill go bigger. For example size 265/75/16 or can I go bigger w/o anything rubbing?

    What's your ultimate goal? If it's to fit 285s, there's gonna be some serious rubbing unless you go with a full 3 inches, and even then there's still probably gonna be a little rubbing.

    I think he's saying he doesn't know if the 1/4 inch height difference will be noticeable...

    What he said.

    I want to lift the rear with the 1" spacer and level out the front with just the 5100,s. hoping that is all I need when I use this size tire 265/75/16 and nothing will rub.

    You can run that size tire with stock suspension with no major rubbing, might need to remove front mudflaps. You will be fine with that size, 285/75/16 you will have rubbing, you might be able to get away with 275/75/16

    I believe kpt and oz-t both have 275s and there is plenty others. I have heard of at least one person that had rubbing on the UCAs with stock wheels and 275s, i think most people can get away without needing spacers though.
