Gents, question...

Since my lift, I've been running 18" Revolvers with -11mm offset and 35" tires. I've been wanting to go back to my stock tires for street driving to get better gas mileage. Problem is...when I put my stock rims back on the front, turning the steering wheel about 1 turn makes the inner edge of the rim scrape against the steering tie rod (or whatever that rod is that goes from the center of the truck to the spindle near the center of the wheel).

There's actually a little "dent" in that rod, which looks like it was put there to allow the wheels to turn without scraping. But mine is installed backwards, so instead of the "dent" going inward, it goes outward. I tried taking it apart and putting it in the other way, but doesn't work with the Procomp 6" lift spindle. What can I do?

I tried using wheel spacers, but the bolts aren't long enough for the lugs to get on all the way. Help???

(I hope this makes sense, it may sound a bit confusing)

The Pro Comp lift is supposed to clear 35's and 325's with stock rims. Idk. Isn't there something on some of the lifts that get switched driver side to passenger side? Just thinking maybe it has something to do with that.

I can see how that might've happened judging from the way the tie rod looks. Any other suggestions anyone? Thanks for the help.

Thanks! Yeah, looks like the lift requires the switch. I think the best option to use stock rims is to use wheel adapters. Thanks again man!
