I do not know if its just the people that do my alignment or what, but ever since I put my lift on, my turning is horrible. When I am on asphalt my tires chirp when I have the wheel at full lock. I do not know if it has to do with having a spacer on with the fabtech or what but it is getting annoying. My tires are wearing horribly on the inside and I just am not sure if the stock UCA allow for enough camber/castor adjustment. Maybe I am totally wrong alltogether? Let me know yalls guys experiances and rememdies. Thanks!

I talked to a guy at a local 4x4 shop the other day and he was telling me how the steering sucks... what your saying and what he told me was the first i heard about it though

My tires don't chirp, but the turn radius sucks

my tires chirp and bounce like a mofo when I'm at full crank in my nnbs and it's stock. It may be from the camber that is produced at full lock. Thats the problem with stock trucks.

Spacer might cause limited adjustment. My radius sucks too, but I am pretty sure that its the same with all these lifts that use this knuckle/spindle. Tires are wearing great too. Might want to look into those new UCA's

I am either going with the new UCA or taking the spacer out for the time being. Do you think running a narrower wheel/tire combo would have any effect? I know all the trucks from the dealership that are lifted usually dont have anything more than a 9 inch wide wheel thats tucked in pretty good with nothing more than a 12.50 on it.

Get UCAs to cure the alignment problem (and ride too) . This thing isnt going to turn on a dime, but mine isnt horrible. I also dont pop U turns in tight spots very often.
