If so, how do your UCAs look? I've got the Camburg spindles w/5100s set at .85 currently. I've got Expos in the rear and want to raise the front up another notch to get rid of what little rake I have. However, I'm unsure if I'll need new UCAs to reduce the angle caused by going up even further

Also currently running 285/75/16s and possibly looking to go up a size - I know I shouldn't have an issue here outside of reducing my MPGs even more

I have same set up with maxtrac spindles. Your uca's will be fine going to 1.75. Your ride may suffer tho. Cause your compressing the springs more, looks like you are running stock coils??? I would leave them where they are at and maybe consider going with a different coil, spring and maybe even setting at 0. Check out the maxtrac spindle thread. There you have every set up possible with spindles. Lotta good info on that thread. I have spindles, billies set at .85 stock coils and I have 295/70's and no issues. Had to trim a lot but rides great!
