Had the ironman stage 2 lift installed today, all shocks, springs, diff drop, torsion bars. Also added extended sway bar links front and rear from trailtailor.

The problem or not, is I've gained 4" inches front to back on lift, and this kit shows 2". So I'll either need to replace uca's, or crank down the torsion bars.

Does anyone think the rear will level itself down over time? Also, recommendations on uca's.

Wasn't planning on dropping another $700 on uca's, buy might have to.

The front end looks high. Appears that you might even have negative rake (if that's a thing). Measurements from hub to fender? I'd say start by lowering your TBs before looking at UCAs or anything further, and what do your CV angles look like?

I think its the pic,, it's about the same height all the way around, I'll lower them down and see what happens.

cv's look fine, I think the diff drop handled that fine

I'm guessing you probably know this, but wth. If the rear springs are really that much higher than the front lift, then you may have gotten a set rated for carrying more weight. Different manufacturers spec them in different ways (light/medium/heavy, or +400, +800, etc.). The first Ironman ones I could look up quickly look to be "performance", rated for 0-440lbs extra cargo weight. So maybe tossing in a few hundred pounds will help them settle.

Mayyyyyybe it’s cuz the front tires are smaller???? Kidding aside, measure center of hub to fender lip. Don’t most folks on here recommend additional aftermarket gear for angles and what not at Beyond 21 or 22 in front and with the appropriate rake the rear would be between 22-24.

I think there is such thing as settling but If you have no added load might need to Check to make sure you don’t receive the wrong spring

What springs did you select for the rear? 0-440 or 440-800? Mine had the 0-440 and the rear end leveled out where it's an inch higher than the front (the proper rake) within 2 months of install. Front does look high though

Just checked the original order and the 0-440 was ordered (Rear Coil Springs: 2" Lift Performance Load (0-440LBS Additional Payload))

Guess I'll throw some weight in the back, and lower the torsion bars, I told the shop to level close to the rear, so that's on me. They did an excellent job installing and charged a fair price too

No your right. lol Waiting on some 18" ray 10's, then spacers, and 285's

The wheels now are stock 16", they were newely installed when I bought this, so they'll be on till I can get some scs wheels
