The only kind of adjustment you can make to increase tire clearance is to maximize caster with the LCA cams (pushes the tire forward), then use the UCA adjusters to bring camber back in line. You can do this with the LR UCAs, too.

If your area sees road salt, non-stainless rod ends will rust and seize after a year. Stainless rod ends are about $200 for a set of four, so I'm not sure if Icon uses them. (Only the 1" uniball is advertised as stainless.) Don't want this to happen:

Man, all you guys with road salt. I had never heard of that before this forum. And you'd think in Alaska we'd use something like that. Just good old fashioned gravel for us.

The salt lowers the melting point of snow to about 0 deg F, so it's useful for most parts of northern US and southern Canada. If your temps are consistently below 0 deg F, the salt doesn't do anything.

Yep, and we have good stretches of those temperatures up here. I'm curious to see if my ultragauge will display negative temps on the intake temperature.
