HELP!! on /RCD lift

i am in the process of installing my new RCD lift and am having major rubbing issues between the front tire and the steering knuckle....i have checkeg all the part numbers and instructions over and it is installed correctly, but it says it has a max of 4.5 backspacing and i am running factory offroad wheels with 265/75/r16 BFG MT....my only thought is that my wheels dont allow eough back spacing any advise would be very helpfull

I have the RCD lift too. However I paid a shop to have it installed so i can't explain technical stuff from experience. I am using aftermarket wheels and tires (285 70 17s) and don't have any issues. i'll take a look at my steering knuckles. Also get alignment done if you have not already

I went with the RCD because I didn't want to run 35" tires. With 33's the 6" looks a little funny i think, there's too much wheel well visible. The RCD rides smooth as shit too so no regrets in that department. You can only go so high with a mid size truck. Next project: F350 diesel
