Knuckle/spring seat contact.

I finally got a proper alignment (camber was off) and now that my front wheels aren't angled inward, my knuckle and strut are making contact going over speed bumps if I don't take it slow. I'm just running a RC lift in the front with a set of monroe quick struts. Hub to fender is under 23 but seems to be above 22.5...hard to measure with my wheels/tires....so I'll say 22.75. Should I be making contact? Will the RR or JBA UCA's fix the issue?

This seems to be a common problem with those quick struts and a spacer lift, I'm not sure if anyone has sorted out what the actual cause is though. Is your lower camber adjustment already maxed out?

What is your lift hight?

The RRO UCA‘s Will Not help you. I bought them and figured out that they doesn’t fir for lifts >2”. The are too short. If needed, buy the UCA’s from JBA. They are long enough and quite strong.

Get a complete alignment done and you shouldn’t have any issues with the knuckle.

You'll probably make contact with JBAs as well. If you're running a 22.75 hub to fender, you're near the maximum height the stock suspension angles can take anyway, and well above what an RC lift should provide. Unfortunately, the only real way to fix the problem is to get a different spindle, like the one Superlift provides.

It's the rough country lift. No mods aside from F150 load levelers in the back. I do have a complete alignment done and everything was in the green. It may go down a bit after the dprings settle but I already have 500 miles on it. I had the same lift on factory components and didn't have this issue. It's only after I did the Monroe quick struts and brand new Moog upper and lower control arms. I didn't spring for the jba uca's because seeing as I only go on mud trails and no crawling I didn't think I'd have an issue.

You’re sure the Moog UCA’s have the same length as the original UCA’s from Mopar? Seems that they are shorter. Same for the LCA’s.
