    Upgraded my tires to Falken Wildpeak 275s and I’m getting some rubbing when I turn.

    King Shocks are still about 7 weeks out. Does anyone know if an alignment will help in the meantime? Thanks

    I was hoping to avoid a BMC which is why I went with smaller tires

    I'm assuming you're rubbing on the mudflap or body mount?

    Alignment should help.

    Have the alignment shop push your caster forward. Maybe something in the +3.5 - 3.8 range and see if that helps.

    Go full wheel lock both directions and see what’s rubbing.

    Super easy fix, most likely. The front plastic is very pliable so take a heat gun or hair dryer to it and push it in. For backside, start with mud flap removal or trim them.

    What UCA's did you go for with the Kings?

    Can he even get that much caster from stocker UCAs?

    But with 275 its probably only plastic that needs to be cut.

    I doesn't look like he's lifted very high in the front, if at all.

    I'm lifted 1.6" in the front and I have +3.6 degrees of caster with the stock UCA's.

    I don't think hes lifted said hes waiting on Kings.

    Just was wondering what the stocker UCA was capable of.

    Thanks for the advice everyone and sorry for the delayed response. The alignment was enough to stop the rubbing which was only occurring in reverse for some reason.

    King Shocks are still about 2 weeks out. I’m lifting her 2.5 inches in the front and 2 inches in the back with Icon springs. I went for the medium load springs to accommodate the extra weight of the Rigd UltraSwing that’s coming next week.

    For the UCAs, I went with SPC. Amazon had them on sale for $569 with free delivery. I know Total Chaos is more popular, but I’m looking for minimal maintenance so I avoided Uniballs.
