I have a 1999 Tacoma and the driver's side tire rubs when I turn to the left. I have 31x10.50's but they just recently started rubbing after I jumped my truck and bottomed it out. I just replaced the front struts on both sides and a 3'' lift should be here tomorrow. The question is, do I have a weak spring in the front? or is somthing else causing the rubbing. Thanks!

if you jumped a stock truck, and now it rubs, you probably bent something or threw out the alignment

Just to clarify... where is it rubbing against? The frame at full left lock?

Its rubbing the fender, and the spring is more compressed on the drivers side also. Its not hitting the frame or anything. And yes I jumped a stock truck and no nothing seems bent.

Seems like something is messed up. Last weekend a friend jumper his Cherokee (subsequently flinging a baseball sized rock through my rear window) and he bent the axle housing, front bumper, and front cross member. Jumping stuff just doesnt tend to turn out good.

Yeah you farked something up 31's should never rub. Jumping your truck is at most ill advised, unless you have designed the suspension for doing so or atleast do it on sand to cushion the landing some.

Yea I regret it now, but for a split second when I was airborne it was freakin awesome! The skid plate was bent into the oil pan and the oil pan had a dent in it but other than that the only thing is the rub when I turn to the left. If it still rubs when I put my lift on it I'll be mad. The shop that put the front struts on didnt say anything was messed up. Im thinkin maybe some alignment problems or somthin. Thanks

"Her shaft is bent and her rear end leaks, you can fix her quick with an oily rag. Use a nail as a starter; I lost the key. Don't pay no mind to that whirrin' sound. She use a little oil, but outside a' that, she's cherry." CW McCall

Jumping is the quickest way to break something. Sounds like something is bent or broken.

I used to have a '69 Baja Bug... man that thing was fun to jump. Scared the hell outta myself a couple of times jumping that thing.

You were hitting the pinch weld with 31s? That is still really strange since the truck comes stock with 31s.
