from the blurry background it looks like the wheels and tires are too wide so not surprising
Spacers do do that I got the spacers to be a cool cat and they’re biting my butt the “cab” corner needs a small intervention with Mr sledgehammer and the grinder but Atleast they won’t refuse to align my truck for a while and I can drive it again with New control arms new idler arm and bracket pitman arm tie rods the back end needs the lift installed but that’s easy I do also need to either put the shock extensions or change to 2-4” lifted gas shocks

2” wheel spacers + new torsion keys within z spec no idea how cranked they are however it looks nice besides needing the rear coil spacers

Vehicle was in a accident with previous owner so I could have my control arms pointing slightly back

Alignment paperwork from yesterday I think I’m maxxed out on caster angle and barely .3 within spec of the minimum the test says 16” wheels but the mechanic said if he put 18” wheels because they’re not the factory size corporate may have forced him to deny it

Huge note: if your caster angle is different you might not rub but with my current alignment I rub
