Where do you guys take your lifted FJs for alignment?

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?

Maaaybe. The longer I'm at work the more my brain rots. The more my brain rots the less creative I become. Lol. Sad but true.
