Wilson's Off Road in Fayetteville did the lift and the alignment, and did a great job. I figured they'd understand the impact of the lift on the geometry so would be the best one's to get it aligned.

Had that on my "other" lifted vehicle before I saw the light and traded it in on my FJ. Used to get an alignment every time I rotated the tires!

Got the alignment today after the lift stuff I have completed. The guys told me they would not be able to get it completely into spec but I have heard that anyway. Here is the final numbers. Does not mean a lot to me, but those smart people may understand better.

FYI...red numbers means out of spec...Green numbers are good.

When I had my ICONs put in, I also had them install a differential drop kit that supposedly helps get the alignment numbers as close to stock spec as possible. I don't have the report anymore though.

ICON stage 1 with extended travel coilovers and Light Racing UCA's (have to replace the UCA's if you get extended travel coilovers). The diff drop is for the front. I have read that it doesn't make much difference, but it is not overly expensive, so I went ahead and added it.

I do my own alignments. Truck drives straight down the road, only problem is I put the steering wheel on crooked.

Brian, Larry Gardner is having issues with getting his Tacoma aligned after a lift and bigger tires. He has been discussing this over on our facebook page. I have a directed him over this way maybe you guys can talk? He is already an ncfj member and he has been for a while.

Brian, I've been having alignment woes for sometime now. No one around here can align my truck.

I need my caster set to +2.5 to +3 degrees, I have TC upper arms.

Every shop I take it to says they can't get it past 2 without sending the camber into negative.

This is my current numbers

Alignment after a lift 430279_285964554810863_100001919618429_655245_871747306_n

Can you hook me up? If you can then I'll make the drive down.

You wanna pic of my cams?
