Body mount rub after LR uca and allignment

I have a 3" lift, 17x10 wheels, 5" Bsp, -12mm offset, 265/70/17 Mickey T. ATZ, 1.25 spidertrax spacers.
Before I had the Light Racing UCA i could fully lock my wheels and reverse with only slight rubbing on the mudflaps. My allignment wasn't perfect, a little squirelly 40+ mph and lots of steering wheel vibes.
Now i just installed LR uca and did my allignment and now have more rubbing so i took off my mudflaps only to realize now im rubbing the body mount on both sides. Here's my allignment specs:

Caster....Before---Final
Left........4.12........2.04
Right ......3.32........1.75

Camber
Left .......0.85........0.36
Right.......0.17........0.41

Toe
Left...... -0.71 .......0.02
Right .....-0.29 .......0.02

I must say though my truck drives perfect now. No pulling, tracks straight and i lost all the steering wheel vibes (i did rotate and balance all tires also). Overall more stable and no more bump steer. highly recommend aftermarket uca's to complete a 3" lift.

My main question is can I go back to the shop and ask them to somehow move the wheel forward to alleviate the rub and keep my allignment in spec, or now that I have remedied my allgnment with uca's is this a problem that has nothing to do with allignment. Me no want to chop metal.. I could not lock out the wheel but that last inch or two of steering makes a big difference in my dialy driving.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Yes...have the shop dial in more caster. You should be around 2.8* both sides. Also, get rid of some of the Camber....See if they can get closer to 0*

Adjustable uca's are a pia to install and set properly. But it will ride better afterwards, most of the time.
