Just had the tires put on the stock rims and it rubs at full lock on the lower control arm (I guess that's what it is called). A shop has 1/4" spacers so I'm going to try those and see if that works and doesn't push the wheel to rub on the wheel well on the other side.

I did the 2" kit but only did the top piece, not the 1/4-1/2"" or so piece that goes on the bottom. I could try puttin that in and it may do the trick, but I have about 3mm clearance towards the rear of the cab in my parking garage. It's concrete encased steel. The garage will win! I'm going to try small spacers first and go from there

Lifting it higher won't solve your back spacing issue. The tire are rubbing on the suspension because of the BS and width of the tire. The wheel spacers are your answer. If they then rub the outside of the fender then you could go go higher, which I would do anyway.

It's rubbing on the sway bar. This shop is saying spacers on factory wheels will vibrate :/

Lots of folks run spacers with factory wheels without issue. The sway bar is part of your suspension.

Exactly, I did not know you can fit that size on a 20x8.5 rim anyway. Spacers ARE NOT THE WAY TO GO, everything that I have read indicates a vibration issue.

Hub centric spacers wont vibe... This is a very common practice.

I'd love to push my stockers out slightly. Never really looked into spaces though. Didnt think they were that common with trucks.

Search on GMFS. More threads than you'd care to read.
