    Ok I’ve done some mods worth sharing about.
    Icon stage 9 lift icon wheeles Firestone mt 285/70/17
    Got n alinement done took some tweaking ended with
    30 caster camber 0 toe 0 not rubbing tested on some
    Lease roads some wash boarded,curved rises small inclines,
    declines. Nothing major love the ride on and off road set on soft.
    Fronts at about 1 3/4 thread.im about 1/4 or so lower on drivers
    Front yes the lean if I adjust the drivers strut to level out
    Will it mess with the alignment.

    If you adjust it now you’ll need another alignment. Would definitely do it since you just got brand new tires.

    Question for the group. I have a stage 4 wither the coils cranked to maximum factory recommended specs (2.1 inches of collar showing) and I am wondering if all other factors are in order with my alignment, could the maxed out preload be what is causing my tires to wear like I am riding on negative camber? For the past 20k miles, my tires have been wearing significantly on the front inners. I drive mostly highway and have had 3 alignments. Done since then. The only factor that has changed is I cranked the coils from 1.25” to the full 2” then had an alignment done right after.

    I would consider a tire rotation and an alignment. Should be 3.0-3.5 castor, 0 toe and 0 camber. OEM specs on a lift do NOT work.

    I rotated the tires every 5k.

    Aligned to zero all specs, -3 caster. After 40k miles, my tires are toast. 8/32 of tread on the outside and 4/32 on the inside. With a 60k warranty I expected more.

    Just had the truck aligned again and putting new tires on. Alignment is not the issue.

    Apparently you do have an alignment issue; don't know why though. My truck is set the same- alignment is 3.3 castor, 0 toe and 0 camber. Good luck, perhaps someone here can help diagnose.

    Mine is 3.6 degrees.

    If your tires were even slightly worn, not noticeable to the eye, they still may wear unevenly despite your alignments.

    All icon kits with UCAs will naturally have a negative caster angle. It increases steering response and lowers the load on the suspension for larger tires.

    Wow I was not aware that caster was adjusted at the uca.
    Well your tire wear problem seems to be above my pay grade
    Good luck with that.

    The UCA forces a negative caster angle naturally by the way it is shaped. The caster is adjusted in conjunction with camber under the LCAs.
