So I had my Dirt King heimed UCA's installed and an alignment done. Ride is excellent now. I'm very happy not to hear the clunk when I go over a large bump. Really feel like I almost ride even a little smoother than before.

The only downside it seems is that for some reason, I now rub more in the rear when turning. Instead of only lightly rubbing at full lock, I rub when only turning about 3/4 of the way.

Can't figure out why that would be the case. No extra height was added. Any ideas? I have not done the PWM. Didn't need to before the new UCA's.

not sure if caster or something was changed with the UCA's. hopefully Nick will chime in. I know on Tundras you can adjust the tires front or back with aftermarket uppers, not sure on titans though.

Congrats on the upgrade. The ride is definitely better on those badboys.

As far as the rubbing...honestly not sure, Nick would be the man for that. Aftermarket UCAs do change up your geometry a bit but, I'm stumped as to why it would actually increase the amount of rubbing experienced. :huh:

I am as well. The guy at the shop actually said it was probably the best UCA he has seen. He said he's never seen one that had that much ability to adjust. Lol. All they use there is RC.

Ask the shop if they can adjust them so it pushes the tires forward.

I may have to. On the print out they gave me, both sides' caster is at 2.7 degrees. Acceptable range on the sheet appears to be 3.0 to 1.5 degrees. So I'm definitely skewed to one side it seems.
