Just did my install yesterday including TC UCA and Coilovers and I have a couple questions / requests
Hoping someone knows or could take the measurements to the top of the fender well on a 3” lift with 285/70/17. Since I was coming from a 3” lift I should have measured in advance so I could get right back where it was but failed to do so. Right now the driver’s side is at about 38” and the passenger’s side is a little over 39”. That is measured through the lug nuts. It definitely looks a little higher and is riding pretty firm almost bouncy.
Will I have any difficulty lowering the suspension without lifting the front off the ground?
Also, I am pretty sure an alignment will cure the problem, but I can hear a rotational grinding noise when moving. It is most noticeable in turns. When I lowered my first love (2000 S10) years ago I remember having the same noises and the alignment cleared them up. I was just hoping someone could explain this noise. Best I can figure is it’s the brakes or dust shields but I cannot figure out why they would make noise based on a need for an alignment.
