Is this a 1 time alignment for $50.00 and does it come with say a warranty? I might have to take you up on the alignment Brian. After I put on my lift Smile

The warranty really depends... lol. Being as most of our vehicles are used off road there tends to be a little more abuse. If its within reason we are always happy to take care of it. We are reasonable guys! haha

Cool, I plan on getting adjustable coilovers sometime in the future so I will need an alignment or 2 once they settle down.

Okay cool. As far as aligning it when it comes in and then like 500 miles later there would only be one charge for sure.

brian has done my truck , twice to be exact...after tires and lift then after my URE fiasco...Jeff is the tech that does the work and he is very knowledgeable in what he does...he actually takes an interest in YOUR truck and how YOU will drive it. Many kudos to Brian and Jeff for what they do. My only issue with ASI is that they are not 74 miles closer to my house!!!

Got mine aligned last week after the 2" spacer lift/level at Black's Tire Service in Wilmington ($69.95).

Toytec said and I quote;
You’ll want the toe set to +0.04, the camber set to 0, and the caster as high as possible without sacrificing either the toe or camber (should be around 2.0 or higher).

I'm wondering about the camber numbers but... The tires seem to be wearing fine... time will tell.

Here's the sheet;

#'s look good to me. Mine is pretty much the same but with higher caster due to my uca's being Light Racing. 3.5 caster .7 camber .05 toe IN. same for both sides or atleast as close as possible Smile

I think your caster is too low. Its not in spec. This would increase rubbing if you go to larger tires.

My caster is 3.0 - 3.2

I don't think you got a good alignment Paul. There is no reason the tech shouldn't be able to get both your camber and caster set in spec with the 2" lift and LR UCAs.

ToyTec said it should be above 2.0 for sure.

Caster should be higher like 3.5, are your Light Racing uca's set at 0 with the gold plate facing the front where you can read the light racing stamp?

Nope... They are set to the 2.0 mark... I guess I could talk to Toytec and see what they think.
