Camber looks way jacked up on the right. Generally, anything over .5 is going to cause uneven wear. Caster looks weird to me, too, considering your have LR UCA's. Just seems like they should be able to get better numbers with aftermarket UCA's but who knows, I'm no expert. Check this thread: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sus...lp-thread.html

My previous tires, Destination AT's, were worn on the outside edges at .7+ camber when I had mine at 2.5 front/1.5 rear lift. I have not gotten UCA's as of yet but they were able to get my camber to .4+/.5+ and there has been no more wear.

I hope that rotating tires every oil change will prevent uneven wear. all camber is at about the middle of the recommended ranges so they can't be too bad, right? I have stock UCA by the way

I agree caster could be better but it feels fine at high speeds. actually at lower speeds the steering wheel is jerked around a bit by ruts/rocks, but that's stock UCAs for you. More pos. caster would help that too but it's acceptable right now IMO

another question, how bad was the uneven wear and did you rotate often?

Basically, I lifted my truck in April and the tires had over 50K on them and I planned on replacing them which I did in July so I never bothered to rotate them, just didn't care. They were worn smooth by the time they were replaced but they also didn't have a heck of a lot of tread left on them. Now with the new tires, GY Duratracs, they are wearing evenly thus far. I ended up lowering to 1.75" until I get the UCA's.

OK, for some reason I was thinking you had aftermarket UCA's. I can really only go by my experience but check out that suspension thread and maybe even post in there too. You will definitely get some answers because there are a bunch of folks subscribed to it.

I'm in the process of lifting the front 2" and rear 1" on my yota. I have the same tires in 275/70r17. What size did you get and how do you like them? I'm worried about alignment so i'm watching this thread closely

Your alignment should be fine with 2" - see the first post in this thread for my alignment results with a 2" leveling kit. I didn't lift the rear at all and it sits perfectly level.

Your tires are actually 32", mine are 31.5". Mine rubbed the little front mud flap that attaches to the front bumper (this mud flap is only on the 2012, I believe) because I got aftermarket rims with less backspacing, so the tires stick out from the fender about 1.25" farther from stock with 265 tires. Less backspacing means that when the wheel is turned it isnt fully within the wheel well, so it can rub stuff. Generally speaking, when people say you can run 33" tires with a 3" lift, they're right, only if you're using stock rims, or rims with the same offset. Once you mess with backspacing, all bets are off.

Since your tires are 32", and 275 width (1/2" wider than 265), I'd be willing to bet that you'll have a little trimming to do when you have the wheel turned or when youre in reverse. You won't know until after you get it aligned though.
