    I just installed LR UCA's and now I rub on the left side body mount. I didn't rub before at all. Could this be an issue with how they were aligned? I searched but i didn't find anywhere that this had happened before. I was thinking if I had an idea what it could be I could take it back to the dealer that installed them and possibly get it fixed.

    I have an 06 with Donahoe coilovers set at the factory height running 285's. when I first installed the co's I trimmed the fenders a little, but I was no where near the body mount. I'm still about half an inch away from the body mount on the right side.

    thanks in advance for the help

    just a couple comfort items.
    Yes, a good alignment guy should be able to move the wheel forward in the well enough to keep you off the body mount and still be in spec. Make sure you point out where it rubs. I went thru the same thing with my 33s
