Ok, my husband is the 4x4 freak but since he bought me a 2010 Titan 4x4, already lifted w/ a 6" ProComp lift and big ol' mud tires, guess I'm a freak now too. LOL Anyway we just got the truck a few weeks ago and the rear axle (and tires) are too far back in the wheel well - to the point if I were to go through a ditch or steep incline, it would take out the rear panel. We're dealing with the dealership and the idiots they had put the lift on now, but was curious if anyone else has had this issue? Thanks so much......:confused:

Oh and the dealership and the company who put on the lift is saying that this is ProComp's issues because the lift is just made that way......ugh

Doesn't sound right, I have a 2006 4x4 w/ a 6" procomp lift and have nothing like what you described with the rear axle. If possible, post some pics for us to see.

I'm no pro and this is just a guess but maybe the blocks are backwards??

Good Luck.

what size are the tires? if they're just too big than that could be your issue. I think 37's are the biggest you can go with just a normal pro comp lift.

Sounds like someone needs a bigger pair of boots and needs to plant their now larger boots firmly in someone elses ***. Best of luck resolving the issue, usually a used truck\jeep with a lift from the lot has been in a wreck in my experience.

Sorry, forgot to post pic... I took a side pic so you could see what I'm talking about and can get pics of where the blocks are if needed...

Can you see anything out of the ordinary in these pics? Had to get at weird angle and try to stay relatively clean (still at work...lol) LW 003.jpg

Oddly enough - we're going to a 4x4 Frenzy thing in Houston tomorrow and ProComp will be there. Before anything else gets done, we're going to have them just look at it and see if they can tell right off what's wrong. I am soooooooooooo in love with this truck and would be crushed if anything happened to it - sure hope I don't have to go and drive it through the building on to the show room floor before it's resolved! LOL :boxing:

This is just a guess; but it looks like your pinion angle is off due to the large blocks used for the lift. I could easily see the rear axle begin rotated downward with a flat block pushing the axle back up to an inch or so. Have them check your pinion angle and possibly replace the flat block with an angled one to correct your pinion which may hopefully pull the axle forward a little.

I think Bestatchess may have nailed it. Can you take a pic from the front of the rear passenger wheel? Make sure to include the bottom of the leaf springs.

If there are marks from the OEM install showing, the install shop may have screwed up the rear block alignment.

Rear blocks on Pro Comp are tapered, are they not? If so they could be installed backwards causing the axle to rotate upward toward the rear.

Do as Panman06 suggested. Take the wheel off and take a photo of the block mounted on top of the leaf springs.

bestatchess probably nailed it, when I saw the underside pics, my first thought was tapered lift blocks installed incorrectly.

Post a pic of the front of the rear axle where it connects to the driveshaft if you can.
