Yep lol. Those tires aren't stock, puts more stress on the suspension. You actually use your truck too so that doesn't help much lol

Go in and ask them if they have them in stock, if they dont they can order them and have them from their warehouse in a day.

I cant wait to hear if this camber bushings are the solution... what I dont understand though is why 2 different alignment shops sent me on my way saying it was within alignment limits.
