Hard to read but your caster seems pretty low

OZ-T 04-03-2013 11:32 PM

BMOC 04-03-2013 11:34 PM

think you need aftermarket uca's to get into spec dude. (light racing/camburg/total chaos)
or lower the truck.

I am not certain about your numbers, but I figured I would give you something to compare again.

The truck is a 2013, not a 2012 (the shop probably didnt have 2013 in their computer), and the tires are 265/70/17 (although wouldnt make a difference in alignment IMHO). Bilstein 5100's in front at 1.75 and rear is normal 0. 2013 has the TSB, so In my TRD Sport I have 3 leafs + the 1 upside down one. Rear Firestone RideRite airbags, but only 5psi in them, so basically non-existent. Nothing else done in the suspension.

Camber and toe effect tire wear not caster , your camber and toe look fine

Take it for a spin and see how it tracks

TRDMike66 04-03-2013 11:53 PM

so basically i need uca to get back in specs? tracking do mean it will wander on the highway I am new to this stuff.

It may feel fine , but you may have little or no caster adjustment left with the stock UCA's , so , maybe

Yes , wander at speed / track straight

TRDMike66 04-03-2013 11:57 PM

ok what uca do you suggest? one with reg ball joint or uni ball?

Depends on your end use

I personally have LR UCA's , which are an adjustable ball joint style , because I was more concerned with getting the alignment in spec and I liked the fact that the BJ was booted , versus more articulation with a uniball

I believe they both carry LR UCA's but I think there is a good deal to be had on them , hang on
