Wow, I didn't order the helper spring either. What spring rate did you opt for in the front?

Me too. Looks like I'll be running into the same issue as you. So even with the spring collar all the way at the top the wheel is tucking?

I have tried calling apex a few times and will send them an email shortly.

I'll need to get home and check the spring height.

I did talk to GC and said the adjustment nut should not touch the half shaft while on the ground.

I also needed to order adjustable front sway bar links. The stock ones were nearly touching the LCA.
