TC UCA hits icon coilover

Just noticed this today while looking over the truck. Theres a mark on both coil and UCA from contact do to down travel. Is there a way to stop this? The rust spot on the coil is where the contact is being made. I dont know what that grey scratch on the coil is. didn't even notice it until i looked at this picture.

I had to rotate the coils untill the UCA would come down and not hit the coils. theres a sweet spot when you rotate the coils where they wont hit...

Are you meaning cranking them up, as in adding lift or are you rotating the whole spring unit itself? What's the easiest way to do that? I posted a few days back inquiring about the camburgs hitting and also discovered the TC's do too! Adding limit straps is an option but rotating them for clearance makes sense if they're not built as one piece?

Well its easier to just jack the truck up and spin the top collar as if you were going to add lift. this should also spin the coil. But your not spinning it alot, so you wont add or lose lift. Just enough to were the UCA's dont hit the coils.
Hope that makes sense...

(Also it doesnt really matter which way you spin it) I just prefered turning them up..

Camburg UCAs and Icon coilovers do the same thing. Rotating won't always find a sweet spot. One option is just to occasionally put some rust stopping paint over the coil steel. Limiting straps seems overkill, but would definitively stop the problem if you get airborn enough to achieve complete droop often enough.
