    I have a 2002 Tacoma with a 3 inch lift. 5150 Bilstein shocks with a half inch spacer up front and 1 and half in aal in the rear. Im running 31 x 10.50 on 15 inch rims. I also have an inch and a quarter wheel spacers behind the rims. My question is will buying a set of Total Chaos or ICON UCAs help get rid of tire rub. I only have rub when I make hard turns. Im also thinking of upgrading those 31s to 33s. Thanks for the help guys.

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    The UCA will only allow 1" more of travel.

    Are you rubbing on the frame? <-- Meh
    Are you rubbing on the firewall? <--- Pinchweld mod..

    Wheel backspacing and spacers are the only thing that can help with tire rub, and the obvious, cutting/hammering the fenderwells in.

    How the hell are you rubbing on 31x10.5s?? I ran those on stock rims with no problem..

    Wheel spacers are all you can really do.

    Do the pinch weld mod
