First off, I was recently cruising TN and saw Toku58 update his sig to say "I'll be over at TacomaWorld" so I thought I'd stop by. I've been on TN, TTORA and TundraSolutions for 3+ years but never knew about this forum until I saw his sig.
Any way, onto the question... I just had my Mickey Thompson Classic Lock 17x9 wheels and 285/70/R17 Nitto Terra Grapplers installed today along with my 5mm hub-centric billet aluminum wheel spacers and the set up looks AWESOME.
The problem comes in when I try to turn my wheels. I have always known I would have 'some rubbing' and that I'd need to trim some plastic, which I've done, but unfortunately I've noticed that the wheels are hitting the cab mounts.
I have the DR front coilovers and the LR UCA's. The coilovers are set at the factory height (2.25") and I could crank them up another 3/4" but I don't think that by itself will solve the problem... plus I didn't want to buy the OME rear 3" kit just yet as the truck sets level now.
What I want to know is if it's possible to have the LR UCA's adjusted to move the wheel further forward in the wheel well so that I can clear the cab mount at full wheel lock? I would have to trim more plastic on the front of the bumper, but I plan on replacing the bumper soon so that's not a big deal. I don't have the tools to cut/box and weld the cab mount so I'm hoping that isn't required. If it is, I'll need to go to a body shop to have the work done.
I'm due for another alignment as I'm currently running ~2.1degrees of caster and according to posts I've read (again Toku58's advice) was to have them set at 2.4 degrees with the larger tires.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
