It must be a combination of the spring size and the design of your particular brand control arm.
I have 700lbs and 800lbs eibach springs (never had to install the 800s but I have them)!and there is a major difference on the gauge of the spring steel used in the coil. My 700s were tight I bet the 800s would have worse issues like what your seeing
My recommendation would be:
â€¢ shorten your limit straps
â€¢ try a different UCA (Moog problem solvers or BTF tube UCA may have more clearance)
â€¢ try rotating the spring on the coilovers so the UCA is in the gap of a coil at top out.
â€¢ you might be able to clearance the UCA at the contact point without reducing an major strength ( I would try the other solutions first)
I cant really shorten my limiting straps because the brackets are welded to the frame. Only way I could go about it is to buy shorter straps(custom 7.5")
UCA are Brand New Moogs so they are not going anywhere.
I can try rotating the coil, but what is going to hold it from rotating back(if it even make a difference) they are Round, not oval
Also I am not going to clearance the UCA
I got the cab on today and the UCA JUST miss the coil.
I am going to put the short eyes on once I get my shock jaws and see what I have then
