    On my 85 60 the back tires occationally rub the frame. Is there anything i can do to prevent this? It only happens when one wheel is fully dropped down and the other is almost all the way up. Any help would be great!

    Try some 1/4" wheel spacers, or get some new wheels with different back spacing.

    yep...spacers or a different wheel offset are your only options. Rubbing the frame is a sign of good articulation tho...my trucks have all rubbed
