Default Icon tire rub question

New hear so I'm sorry if this has been discussed already.

I just got a 2018 f150 limited. On order are a set of cali offroad Busted 20 x 9 with a plus 18 offset, 275/65/r20 ( 34.09") 11" Nitto ridge grapplers, Icon 2.5" resi front and back.

Questions are

Will the tires rub on the resi? Ive recently just emailed icon but id love to hear back from members here also.
I also read that the rear shocks will raise the rear end ( not sure how thats possible) and also some people saying that they are using block also to keep it level

Here is what I'm after I guess.... I drive lots of gravel roads. rough ones too. Im after a level truck with good handling.

Thanks in advance

If you are just adding the Coilovers, no, it will not rub on the Resi.

The Resi's will be mounted away from everything.

If you were adding their UCA, it will most likely hit that depending on your wheels backspacing.

No rub on the resi

i had to go to 3Ē on the front coil or else the truck was going to sit super high in the back. Now I have 1.5Ē of rake which is good for me.

I loce the lift lift but Iím getting a really bad ping sound in parking lots from the front end. Almost like spring like with a ping sound. Sucks!

Talked with Icon but I have limited responses from them. Talked with the installers and they said to bring it back in for a look.

Some me guys are saying a ďbreak in periodĒ. I call bull****

I have the icon's on my truck and after I installed them I was getting like a ping-rattle type noise from my passenger side coilover and it ended up being the round washer underneath the foam bumpstop on the bottom of the shaft that would make noise when hitting bumps. I ended up putting some rtv silicone underneath the washer so it wouldn't move and on the driver's side the foam bumpstop is snug enough against the shaft to hold the washer tight. Just a thought. Can you get a pic to show how close the tires come to the resi? Thanks

On the bottom mount that supports the coil spring there is a opening that allows access to the bumpstop and washer, itís not a lot of room but itís enough. No disassembly.

maybe be stupid question here but

first step jack up the truck and take the wheel off or can this be done with the wheel on?

The washer on yours was was loose then and the silicone stopped the play in it?
