    Is there anyway to prevent rubbing on the frame with stock 12 bolt If not where is the best place to get spacers. My blaze is a stock suspension with 35s soon to have a 5" lift but it will have alot of flex. I hate things that prevent travel like this

    Where are you rubbing the frame and with what? I'm running 39.5's with 5" of lift on a pretty flexy truck and i'm not rubbing my frame anywhere./forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif I will have to tub the rear wheel wells though...the tires rub the inner tubs pretty hard at full stuff.

    I am rubbing on the inside of tire against the wheel well tub its not acutally the frame. Are you running 39.5s on a 12 bolt cause I think the 14 bolts are wider /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I wouldn't run 39.5's on a 12 bolt. I run a 14 bolt FF and my rims have 3.5" of backspace.

    I had a 12 bolt in the truck when I first bought it and blew it up backing out of a parking space...on 33's/forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
