allignment shops are crooked. i took it to one after we dropped my truck and they told me for 250 dolllars they could fix my allignment plus 80 for the allignment.. basically they wanted 250 dollars for 100 dollars worth of cam bushings and some labor

"within spec" and "correct" are 2 different things.

a halfass shop will just get it in spec, a good shop will put the numbers where they need to be.

i dont understand

so hmm.... crank your tie-rods both out. because the tie-rods should correct the problem...hmmm... just thinking out loud here..

shadow905- you gotta remember that vehicles should be (all 4 tires) "out of alignment" just a little bit, so when someone sits in the vehicle the tires will straighten out. also a tip is when your doing a wheel alignment you should have as many passengers in the vehicle that you would normally carry. so for example say you always haul around 3 passengers plus you so say 4 people, ya'll should sit in the f**king seats for the alignment.

Looks good to me now! I'll post pics later when I get home. Drives smoother too now that it's not riding on the inner lugs of the tires lol
but the tires already have their damage done to them. I imagine it would ride even better on some brand new tires.

like someone posted tyler, was it doing this because even though your suspension is stock* (*cranked t-bars), it's the larger tires that cause the alignment to be off?
