level kit rub

Hey guys, just put on a Rancho 2.5" leveling kit along with 325,60,r20 BFG AT. I am surprised to find that i rub at full turn. I also find that the truck wanders a bit on the highway. anyone else experience this, or do I have a bigger issue. My last Ford, 06 F350, had no issues with a Pro Comp set up.

Any Ideas are appreciated.

Thanks

Did you get it aligned after the lift? What pressures are you running?

Rub on the radius arms can be caused by wheels with to much positive offset, 'specially on a tire that is almost 13 inches wide.

hey guys, thanks for the reply's. I did make a mistake, it is a Revteck 2.5". I do believe I am rubbing on the mud flaps, which i thought was a little odd. I am also only rubbing when fully turned to the left. The right seems to be OK. I was told they did an alignment, but i may have to double check.

Thanks again guys

I just put a 1.5 kit on mine and I have no rub at full turn with 35x12.50x20's on factory wheels. I'm surprised you do

No this is an 11, F350. The tires are sized at 325 (12.8") 60,20. This measures out to actually be 12" wide exactly, and 35" tall mounted on the truck. I am surprised that it is rubbing as well. Is it possible my axle is now sitting to far back in the wheel well?

Found It!!! My installer "missed a step" they needed to install some supplied bushings on the ball joints to correct the caster. After i spoke to RevTeck, we realized this step got missed. Back to the shop. Guys were good, they took care of it, adn it is night and day difference.
