    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

    Your coilovers are adjustable, so much of what you're asking is dependent on how they are adjusted. You can crank one side up more than the other to correct Taco Lean to an acceptable degree. How high they are adjusted up or down will determine if you sit level or not with an AAL. You do not need shims if you are just doing a 1.5" AAL such as the Icon progressive. It doesn't look like you're missing anything, but you will need new lug nuts for the aftermarket wheels if your factory alloys use the shank "mag" style lug nuts that mine do.

    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.

    The more I read this forum about lifting my soon to arrive 2016 DCLB OR, the dumber I feel.

    VSC light issue, Taco Lean, 3" lift is stressful on shocks. I've spent so much time here I feel like I'm studying for a PhD and getting nowhere.

    Many photos of Gen2 with 3" lift and 285/75/16 look great to me. Is this not a good choice for Gen3? ... with consideration for the VSC issue.

    I will have a SnugTop camper shell which adds maybe 200 lbs to the rear and some backpacking gear, and a pair of skis. I don't want to cut anything or have any rubbing. There are so many brands and options I just don't know where to turn to.

    Can someone spec out a basic list for me as a starting point? I know I want a kit with UCA (based on what I read).

    I guess stock rim won't be the best choice?? Please do not tell me to "search the forum". That is all I've done this entire holiday period.
    Just getting a VIN and build-date has been frustrating enough.

    I don't have a garage or the tools or know how to do this (at least not yet), so I will need to call Maximum Offroad in Vegas and ask them to install for me (reviews say they are awesome). I want to have some knowledge and a direction before I call them.

    I'm not hardcore but have taken my stock xterra to places that shock some people with lifted rigs. The look of WTF on their faces. So this is not for posing and I will push it to some degree and need a reliable setup.

    Thanks to the experts who are willing offer some good solid advice to get me going.
