    Whats wrong with the 529's ? That has nothing to do with keeping it between the lines.
    Shouldn't be that hard to figure out your issue, lots of people have come before you without the issues you describe.

    FWIW, I'm on the hunt for a 1" body lift myself, I did a 3" lift and stuffed 37X13.5's under it and need just a little more room.

    Just a shot in the dark, but isn't the diff drop for correcting the CV shaft angles?

    Quote me if I'm wrong but BDS should have supplied a big diff. Drop in the kit. A close neighbor has this same kit I'm going to try to look at it soon just to see what his cv angles look like. Just a side note I wouldn't do a body lift they really do not look good.

    Good morning. Nice looking Tundra! I had a very similar size tundra with the 7” pro comp , coilovers, 37” x12.5” tires, 22x12” Rim’s and a -51 offset. I did have the carrier drop for the driveshaft, coach builder shims, coach builder steering ends and a body chop mount installed. The body shop mount was a must otherwise the tires rubbed.

    So heres my questions on your setup. Did you have a body mount cut yet for clearance? What’s your rim size & offset? Where is the tire rubbing at the moment? Did they move or trim your front inner fenders yet? Any pictures would be a great help. Hopefully we can figure out a solution on here.

    Here’s a photo of my front suspension when it was installed. Did you replace your UCAs?

    Did you get aftermarket Upper Control Arms installed on your lift? This makes a big difference on the geometry of the suspension!

    I put just over 90k miles on my previous tundra with the suspension and wheels done from day one. I had no issues with the CV angles. My truck drove very smooth. Only issue I had was the body mounts, so I had them cut to remove the rub at full crank.

    You should show off your truck and wheels on custom offsets.com when ever anyone looks at those wheels they can see your set up it's pretty cool.

    Yea I like those as well but the spokes most of the time on those come all the way to the edge these have more lip. I want to run a 35x13.5 tire so I don't get into curbs with them. I'm sure it would happen to me if I domt have some tire to protect them.

    Im constantly worried that I’ll curb my wheels. My fault though because i wanted a stanced look. When these tires wear out I’ll put more meats.
