alighment issues w/ ICON C/O, Camburg UCA & spindles?

Quick question, And I don't see why I'd have any problems getting it aligned BUT...

Right now I currently have Dr/ICON coilovers (maxed out pretty much) and Camburg UCA's. The plan is to add the spindles and take the coilovers down to NO preload.

Question is: Will I have any issues aligning the front end at all?

Thanks!
Shane

EDIT:


in post #15
"He explained that because the Camburg UCAs are longer, the're designed to compensate for the "droop" that's created when you use coilovers to lift the truck. So when I add the spindles and "lower" the coilovers back to ZERO PRELOAD (stock height), i'll end up with positive camber due to the longer UCAs sitting level instead of pointing downward.

Does that make sense? it does since he went over it again with me LOL So guess now the only way to get what i'm looking for (4" of lift and good alignment) is to go back to stock UCAs or stock length UCAs then install the Spindles... "

The spindles will not make getting an alignment any more difficult.

^^^ I didn't think so but for some reason... My buddy told me that I might have issues with camber.. I said everything should align like stock but the wheels be pushed down 4". I'm right... Right?

^^^ Ok I spoke to my buddy again.. he explained it a little better... I'm guessing the reason why you were able to reach 0 camber was because of your UCAs and them being stock.

He explained that because the Camburg UCAs are longer, the're designed to compensate for the "droop" that's created when you use coilovers to lift the truck. So when I add the spindles and "lower" the coilovers back to ZERO PRELOAD (stock height), i'll end up with positive camber due to the longer UCAs sitting level instead of pointing downward.

I just called Camburg and they said that the lowest i'd be able to take the coilovers down to would be 1" and that I should still be good to get it aligned... that would still put me up at around 5" of lift.. :/
