These.... Your kit is fucked up, get a real long travel kit and everything will line up. Manufacturers have an R & D dept for a reason....

You are running coil overs.

These are not coil overs (notice, coil not "over" shock, those are bumps in the coil):

It doesnt strain the parts as much as youd think, because everything is limited before it reaches its full articulation. Obvoiusly something is fudged up though, this damn camber issue is driving me nuts
That doesn't mean it isn't the frame when you jack the truck up even at the LCA you are removing all load on the UCA. It's either the UCA bushings, wheel bearings, or frame flex.

Coilovers imply that the spring is mounted to the shock, it appears from the pictures (to me at least) that they aren't connected but that the shock still lives inside the spring.

I noticed the wack UCA when he posted the pic, then realized this is a homemade death trap, so many things that are wrong, just really wrong...

Like others have stated, I would refuse a ride...with that kind of extra strain something is bending under load...wondering if the OP has wheeled this hard yet, I have my doubts about the first jump, large bump/boulder/crevasse etc...

OMG

Initial Coil spring suspension had the coil mounted next to the shock (ie the "not a coil over" pic). Any suspension with a coil mounted over the shock (ie stock suspension) is a "coil over" suspension. That pic can be dissieving due to the bump stops mounted inside the coil.

Either way, I was initially just trying to be a small dick, not make this a discussion...

On topic, OP i think your issue is your springs are sagging; stiffer springs should help. Im hesitant to give this advice as the REAL issue is your setup is ghetto. You ever jump this? I hope not...

That is the sketchiest LT job I have ever seen and why would you not get proper parts for it, fabtech for coilovers seems sketchy as well

unless youre a professional, youre not going to see if youre frame is fucked. if you havent carfaxed it, do that too. more than likely previous owner crashed it, fucked up the front end, then used the existing parts to create the mongoloid lt kit you now have. buying a proven kit probably wont help if your frame is fucked.
