Default Fabtech 2.5 lift

Alright just a quick question will this lift fit with stock rims? I read somewhere it might not? Just got one and havent got rims yet but wanted to throw it on!

The 2.5" lift that is just the upper control arm and spring will work with stock rims, its their spindles that won't work.

Some have had problems with the backspacing on the OEM wheels with the aftermarket spindles. I ran doetsch tech spindles on OEM for a few days without a problem. I believe it is just the fabtech that have problems.
