    Sexy truck. I notice you have +10 offset wheels with 2 1/4 in front and 2 in rear lift and 285 tires. Any rubbing? If so how much trimming did you have to do?

    Before the lift it rubbed the mudflaps when turning sharp. After the lift it still rubs the flaps, but barely, and I can hardly hear it. I guess I'll get the dremel out and trim a little.

    Thank you for the nice comments and welcoming me. I will say I appreciate this board. I did 95% of my research on suspension and proper lift methods from this board. I am very happy with the look of my truck after the lift and even more pleased with the ride quality. It actually rides better than the stock setup! I've read that UCA's are sometimes needed. When asking about them while ordering my parts the guy did not seem to think I would need them. But at highway speeds (60 and up) I do notice its a little more effort to keep it straight. It's not terrible but something I would like to fix. What would you guys recommend? UCA's? What brand? Target alignment specs?
