Fabtech spindles with stock wheels

I think I read somewhere that you "cant" use stock wheels with fabtech lift spindles. Anyone have experience with Edge fabtech lift spindles with the edge 5 spoke rims? Pics would be great too.... debating if I want to keep the stock rims or go aftermarket.

Thanks!

Kris(s10killer) used the stock wheels with Fabtech spindles. Does it hit at full lock or all the time? Did you use the steering stops?

i was at full droop and the outer tie rod hit the rim. When it was on the ground it was too close for comfort.
