LR UCA SETTINGS HELP!!!

I just lifted my 2011 DCSB Sport and installed LR UCA. I went today to get my new 18" XD Monster wheels with 285 65 18 all terrains put on. When fitting the wheel they noticed it wont work due to the UCA settings. The wheel was below the UCA. What position does the adjustable ball joint need to be in in order for the wheels to fit? All the way positive?

Im talking about this nut. It is installed correctly. That nut can be adjusted to move closer to the truck or further from the truck

Yes thats what I am talking about. I have the caster in the neutral position. When they put the wheels on to test fit the inner lip was under the UCA. Should I push the camber all the way from the truck?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

OZ is right, the SPC needs to face out. Did you look at the instructions?

The camber nut sets the amount of Caster added. With the "SPC" out, thats the only way it can go. If the wheels are hitting, then the OP has the wrong back space on the wheel.

The camber nut can be adjusted toward the wheel or away from the wheel .

The caster is adjusted in the ball joint setting , no ?

Camber setting needs to be at 0*. If the OP is that close, the back space on the wheels is wrong.
