My LR's contact my springs when fully extended. It actually tore the boot. Do uniball style UCA's contact the springs?

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

Post the suspension set up, their travel, and your alignment specifications for answers that aren't guess's.

Pics are also worth 1,000 words.

That bad boy is at a terrible angle, did you loosen the lower control arms when you installed? Is the SPC logo facing out?

I torqued them once the truck was off jacks. No, I did not loosen lower control arm. SPC logo is facing out. Maybe its the 1/2" spacer. Pax side is close but not touching.

Ur lowers might be loaded up, not allowing the truck to settle.

I get the same thing with my 885's/5100's at full droop (when jacked up). It's only on the driver's side, too, where I have the 1/4" taco lean spacer. The passenger side comes close but the boot doesn't touch. I also have LR UCAs.
