Caster is at 2.6* currently down from previous 3.0*
Front axle relocation plates
My tires don't rub my fenders. They rub my frame and LCA. The only way to stop that is decrease turning radius (add to steering stop) or POS wheel spacers or new wheels.
I know quite a few people who rub with 265/70/17's in the same place. Do you have your sway bar on? Stock bump stops? Stock UCA's? Are you beating it pretty good?
I know at least 10 people on TW that would totally disagree with the mud flap comment and have seen me rip mine off more then once.
I did trim the shit out of them in the front as well as taking at least 4-5" off in height, added structural silicone to the backsides, and aftermarket (very strong) body clips to them - they still ripped off all the time.
