    Before I get a bmc I had a question about icon billet delta joint. I heard that they can move the wheels forward a bit. Is this true and how/ what do I tell the alignment shop. It barely rubs at full lock in reverse I only have 35s on +25 offset. About 2.5” of lift.

    Why are spending that much money on UCA for a 3/1 lift? You will get a better ride, quieter, less maintenance, with a SPC or JBA for about 2/5 the price

    Try pushing caster higher, that will push wheel away from cab mount.

    I have Camburg arms so I'm not able to speak directly with regards to your numbers....but I'm around 6 from what I recall. Camburg builds a lot of caster into their arms.

    What's your current caster?

    I believe it was 3 I have to look for paper or stop by my alignment shop. I have even wear it drives well and barely rubs so no emergency. I’ll report back

    Adding caster also changes the steering feel. Maybe ask them to get you 4.5 and see how it feels. That is if you have the ability to realign a couple times at no additional cost.
