    Compressing and turning sounds like you're hitting the back of the wheel well.

    Possibly, I just can't see where at the moment. After lifting up the driver front wheel I am shying away from the UCA issues. And leaning towards the rubbing on the front fender well.

    Maybe putting on my front bumper will fix it :)

    Side note. Doing a diff breather relocate next to the filler cap + camper shell is turning into a 2 man job. So I am waiting for my neighbor to get home to hold the breather while I push the hose on.

    Most of the time it is the tire hitting the cab mount and occasionally if the tire is large enough it hits the frame underneath the engine when locked and compressed.

    Do you think that I would need to change out my rear shocks as well? Right now I just have the stock shocks with a AAL.

    +1. The toytec coilovers are just a 5100 with an eibach spring and a pain in the ass to adjust system. They gain you nothing but the ability to adjust to odd heights. Better to spend a few more and get real adjustable coilovers.

    For $820 you can get SAW 2.0s

    the after caster split is now off. the before caster was already on point i wonder why they adjusted it? caster split should be no more then .5 and caster usually pulls to the side with the least amount of caster
