    Where does it rub? I doubt lifting higher will accomplish anything. With how the wheels stick out I'd bet the rub is just the pinch weld, and can be fixed with a little trimming, also, have you gotten it aligned since you installed everything?

    Op i can tell you this last time i saw a guy on here try to run a spacer on his 5100 (granted he had stock coils and on top notch) his stock ucas were smashing into his coils and his cvs looked like this \ at ride hight. Its not advertised to go more then 3” of lift(especially on a 4wd)up front unless you DP lift

    Positive or negative because I just noticed driver side has a positive camber

    Looks positive to me, top of the wheel too far out. Cut the plastic away from the pinch weld then beat it flat with a hammer, or cut it off with a grinder and you should be good. Same situation happened to me because my wheels stick out farther then stock. Easy fix

    I did that but I kept pushing the fender back and it was having contact with the door and whenever I open the door it made a popping sound but I’ll try and find a solution to prevent that from happening thanks!

    Lets see those wheels. That's a ton of offset, as another poster said it doeant matter how much lift you have with a wheel like that, it's gonna rub no matter what.

    I have 2 “ wheel spacers and w/ and w/out it they still rub but I just trimmed of some of the fender and hammered it down. Tires still rubbing A little at full turn.

    You gotta remember 31's came stock on these trucks for certain years. Whats the backspacing on your wheels? Cuz it looks like they stick out more than 2". More than 4.5" of backspacing and you start to see the issues your having.
