Picked this up a week ago. 2021 WT with an icon stage 4 kit (I believe). As she sits, the fronts have a noticeable amount of positove camber. I'm assuming the PO had some weight out front to where it wasn't as noticeable.
My question, is this an issue I should adjust quickly to save the tires or can it wait till I add some front end weight?

That looks to be an excessive amount of camber, I wouldn't wait too long to get it checked. Did they upgrade the UCAs along with the stage 4 coil-overs?

Yes, the UCAs are Icon tubular versions.

Seems like a pretty simple thing to grab a spanner and run those nuts up the coilover bodies, not something that requires a shop to accomplish right?

Yeah that part isn't hard, as long as things move as they should.
But definitely needs an alignment regardless of where you set the height/stiffness at.

I had a similar issue with my FJ and tubular UCA's (Total Chaos in my case) with Sway-A-Way coilovers. The lower cam plates were maxed out for alignment, so I was never able to correct the camber. You will burn through tires really quick if you do a lot of paved road driving. If your lower cams are maxed out, you may need to switch to UCA's that allow you to make adjustments as well.

Icon's kits are well designed. The matched UCAs should allow for correct camber adjustment. I wonder if the PO just slapped the kit on and didn't do an alignment.

It sits a bit high in the front, I suspect it lost a couple hundred pounds off the nose before it got traded in.

I have the Icon Tubulars with King 2.5s... Accutune convinced me that they had the best results with the Icon uppers. They did struggle to hit spec with some of the other brands of uppers. I had mine aligned and could hit Ford spec. Something is wrong here... My guess is that it is with the guy doing the alignment.

Gotcha. I'd try cranking down on the fronts until it's sitting level (or to your liking) before the alignment check.

Same setup. No issues on alignment. Tubulars from Icon are fine. Just hit that alignment shop up asap
