Icon5 Leveling

Need some input...

I tinkered with the idea of adding a 1.5in spacer between my RCD coil over mount and the OEM mount... Tried it... Then tried a 1in spacer... Nothing works... The whole reason behind doing the spacer is to bring the front end to level with the rear ( don't want to sacrifice the rear height)...

Now I've seen SEVERAL trucks tower 35's with the RCD kit with a 3in Body lift and I love it! Yet Mine has never done that from the day I got it back from the 4WD shop. I'm thinking about taking it to another shop and saying make the front level for whatever the price is without taking anything out of the back. I don't know what the problem is!!! Can anyone suggest anything? The adjusters on the coil-over are pretty close to bottoming out, so I don't know what's left to do to it to level it... I need some advice...

I was hoping to do the spacer trick and do a write up on it on here, but it never ended up working. I hate the whole situation too...

We just finished my buddys truck. Put the 4in superlift on his truck and torque his torsion bars, and he already had put the 3in body lift on previous to that.... Then tonight while I was playing with my truck (He's got a HUGE heated shop with hydraulic lift!!! :-) ) He took my 2 front tires and put them under his truck to see what they're gonna look like tomorrow and his 4in superlift with body lift (Torque torsions) seemed to tower my 35's better than my truck does... PISSED ME OFF!!!

What's the deal?

search around on here, the coils that RCD uses kind of suck. There are many threads here with people using different coils on the RCD shocks and getting MUCH better lift and ride from the RCD kit.

Yah I know about the coils... I just found out today from the guy that put my kit on you can run a UCA from a company called Total Kaos that makes a UCA with an angle so I could add a spacer... He said without that Arm, I can't run cuz it'll put too much angle on the UCA and CV shaft. I'm gonna look into it as a temp level until my SAS next summer lol
