They will align it automatically for you. No need to worry. Post pictures of the new frame when it's all said and done

If they f it up. Make them re-do it. Tell them you feel unsafe and it's costing you $ in parts to replace the tires and suspension etc lol

well the last time they did it was like 3 years ago, i had it aligned by my brother inlaw after the lift (best damn mechanic i've seen) and we did it at the ford garage he works at on a sunday (yeah i know i went to a ford garage). anyway it's going in for the frame tomorrow, and i'm just scared that they are going to f something up, cause my local toyota garage does not have the best rep. from my experience and from what other people have told me.

Exactly. I guess just trust the stealership on this. And watch your treadware. Also make sure it drives straight.

Getting a high enough caster setting is usually the problem with stock UCAs. Your LR UCAs can be set at 2.0 degrees of positive caster to start with.

Ask for a detailed report on what they set the alignment to. You do not have to accept that old line about how they were able to get into spec. Ask for the exact settings they used.

Toe and camber should be 0 degrees for both sides. With your UCAs caster should be at least 2.4 degrees. Somewhere between 2.4 and 3.0 is ideal.

Frame Replacement

How long did you have to wait before you received a call from the dealer to take your truck in for the frame replacement? I've been waiting since October and still no frame!!!!

Imagine you figured out the answer to this question (how long does it take for the dealership to get the replacement frame in) . My dealership gave me a 2012 Tacoma the day they looked at the frame. Took a total of 2 weeks for the regional rep to come down and ok the replacment and get the new frame in. Two more weeks to do the work.
