    I am adding some Maxtrac 4" spindles on my 2015 4 door v6 and I have Camburg UCAs and Icon non resi coilovers. Can I turn back the coil to 0" of lift or should I leave some threads showing? Any ideas would be great. The truck has Icon AAL in rear and sits almost even now but it does sit 1/4" lower up front and I am adding a ARB bumper on it later. Also running 285 tires. I currently have 2.25" of thread showing.

    This is before the spindles:

    Not sure about your coilovers but you can dial them back so you only have the 4" lift that the spindle provides. You will get a better ride with the coilovers having less of a preload.

    Yup...I did that and the ride for so much better!!! I left a half inch or so still showing. Make sure at full droop the coils aren't loose

    Make sure you align! Double check the brake line and make sure it has enough flex. Looks good enjoy!

    Awesome.
    Kind of a few months later but I've been searching for a build like this.
    I want 4" spindles with icon coilovers set to 0
    Was thinking about adding 2.5" OME leafs for the rear, but would that level it out enough?
