    I have no idea. I don't have them yet, but I'd imagine each set up will be different depending on suspension set up, settings, wheel size and offset and tire height and width.

    Still looking for advice on my proposed set up.

    itll also come down to your alignment numbers. 0 camber. 3.0-3.2 castor. 0.01-0.05 toe will be best. im not rubbing at all with my current set up. if they set castor based on stock range youll rub body mount side.

    This is best for a 2.5 to 3 inch lift?
    I have about a 2.7 lift with 285/70's
    I rub on the right side

    Are you rubbing on the cab mount side?

    I am getting pretty close to pulling the trigger on a lift/suspension set up. Need some advice. I am likely buying the following:

    King 2.5 Remote Resi Coilover (25001-119)
    Total Chaos Uniball UCA (96504)
    King 2.5 Remote Resi Rear Shocks (25001-121)
    Icon Add a Leaf (51100) Or Deaver Add a Leaf
    Method NV 17 x 8.5
    BFG KO2 285/70/17

    Am I missing anything?

    should be golden with that setup.

    Should this be level? Or close? Don't want rake and really don't want to be nose up either.

    Your stance is dependent on how you set your front coilovers. They're adjustable so you can set as pleased.

    Do I also need spacers in the front to clear 285/70/17s? No

    Do I need a spacer to correct the Taco Lean? No. All you would need to do is set your preload higher on the driver side. My coilovers are 5/16" difference and it levels out the front perfectly.

    If I go with Deaver add a leaf (or either really) do I need the shim? Or do I need anything else to correct the geometry?

    For the Leaf pack, if you want to save some money you can go with the toytec progression or the wheelers multi progressive pack.

    There hasn't been any reports of vibrations after lift so you wouldnt need the ship or cb spacers. I added the shims on my truck just because the kit I bought came with it.

    For alignment after its all installed.

    camber: 0 (very important for tire wear)
    castor: 3.0-3.2 (this will bring your tire more forward to avoid rubbing cab mount with stock range)
    toe: 0.01-0.05

    With the progression packs, I would suggest taking them apart and putting another coat or two of paint on them. I had mine on for only two months and they are completely covered in rust already. I drive up to the snow every weekend though.

    One other thing in regards to the preload setting on the coilovers. You can set them as pleased but there is a maximum. I'm not exactly sure with the numbers are on the Kings. Double check with King or where you purchase them.

    Thanks. I have some experience with shocks from racing offroad. I admit there were guys on my team who knew a lot more about it and did most of the suspension setup, but I learned enough to figure it out. That said, I will be contacting King if for nothing else, having peace of mind.

    I'm excited to see how this comes out, I'm sure it'll look sweet. Let me know when you get your parts in, maybe we can meet somewhere local and check it each other's trucks.

    Actually, there have been reports of the needle bearing vibe.

    I rub on my right side, on the cab mount and a little on the fender corner.

    I defitenely need another alignment.
    After I lifted the the truck my alignment tech said he didn't have to touch the right side because it was still in spec and he only had to adjust the left side.
    Maybe that's why it's rubbing.

    Where did you go? I have a friend in Hesperia that owns an auto shop. I'm sure he'd do a good job, but I'd rather go somewhere where the techs had specific experience in aligning vehicles aftermarket setups i.e. Extended travel shocks/ aftermarket UCA

    I had it done at auto shop in Barstow,
    I was out that way for work and figured a local shop there could get an alignment right.

    I'll be going back though since I paid for it already. They should offer free adjustments. My left side seems to be golden.

    What brand/model tires are these? I wasn't able to find that size anywhere.
