I know this forum gets posts like this all the time but ive read so many threads my head is going to explode so just looking for some general comments.



So Ive decided on the fabtech stage 1 6" for my own reasons, so that not so much what im in question on.



The guy at the shop im going to have it recommended the Rancho 9000 for the rear. Now I have come across other shocks for the rear so just wanted some general comments on that choice?



Next I like my stock off road wheels but im aware that they wont fit with my 35x12.5x17 BFD MT KM2 unless i was to do some modding. Unless, I do spacers. Now im considering the spacers but if i do them on the front then the front rides wider then the rear like most chevys but not sure I want that. So your comments on this? Should I just get new wheels with the 5" back spacing?



Thanks ahead

I asked the same thing about the spacers and I was told to just get rims that fit. Spacers are junk from my understanding :deathsent

That's what I'd shoot for...I had a set of 315/70/R17 BFG A/T's on the stock off-road factory wheels, they fit...Are the KM's wider and might rub the spindle?

Before you buy any shocks, search around this forum, and read why so many guys stay away from Ranchos...

I'm not a tire guru but why won't these tires fit the oem 17s?

your stock wheels will work fine with that tire and the FT kit. Do not use spacers.
The reason the guy suggests Rancho shocks is because there is a big profit margin on them.

Fabtech is often junk as well, although I'm not familiar witht eh kit for the titan, and I don't know what shocks it runs up front either.

I keep hearing it and for whatever reason it seems to hold true. "If it's red and white the shocks not right".
