I purchased a GMC 2014 Crew Cab w/ 6in basic Gen 2 Fabtech lift. Replaced struts and shocks as it was needed and took it in for alignment. Shop said they wouldn’t touch it until lower balljoints were replaced. So I replaced lower balljoints and put on aftermarket UCAs (Kryptonite). I called Kryptonite to insure the UCAs were GTG with the Fabtech knuckle before purchasing; they gave the all clear. I tightened all to spec, went to put wheels on and I now rub the UCAs. Upfront, money is an issue so looked for most viable solution. Purchased 2 inch Bora hub centric spacers and not wanting to trim the studs, look like best fit for my issue. 1.75” is all I needed but, I was sold on the additional .25”. Issue I’m facing now is I’m working a wheel at a time so started on front driver side. With everything attached and torqued, I lowered my truck down and driver side wheel now has extreme positive camber to the point sitting there like that probably isn’t good so I jacked it back up. I did mark the camber plates with the OE UCAs and installed new UCAs to that position. It’s as if the weight of the engine is now leaning on the front driver side wheel. Did camber plate position change with new UCAs? Will the positive camber lessen when I do the passenger side front wheel? Worried that jacking up other side the weight will shift more and cause everything to buckle on the driver side. Any help is greatly appreciated! if posting in wrong forum my bad. Just signed up, but been reading threads for a few months now.
Hi everyone, First off if there is a more appropriate place to post this please let me know and I'll be happy to repost! So to start off I have a 2015 Sierra 1500 with spacers on the top of the shock tower that create about 2-2.5" of lift and 3" rear blocks. I searched over multiple forums but couldn't find anyone with this exact issue. I went from stock 265/70r17 bridgestone duelers to 285/70/r17 Falken Wildpeak AT3Ws. Everywhere I searched it seems that plenty of people run the 285/70/17 KO2s with no issues with a level so I figured these would be the same, unfortunately at full lock the tire rubs on the UCAs. I was wondering what my options here are, the way I see it I have 3 options. 1. Downsize to 275/70/17 AT3Ws and get a little money back 2. Put some spacers on and hope that the UCA rub goes away and doesn't create a problem with the fender liner (I don't know much about these or how far I would have to go with them, I would prefer not to cut anything) 3. An offroad shop said that they could shave down the UCAs if they're the right material (I forget what kind I would need to have, I know that there are 3 different stock options for 2015). Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated! I have 30 days with the tire shop to decide what I would like to do, but I would prefer to get it done sooner so that I can stop worrying about it! Thanks everyone.
