They got me as close to spec as possible and in and out of there in an hour for $60 bucks.

"Bear" (that's the guy's name) had issues with my LCA bolts on the passenger side and wasn't able to adjust it... Apparently all the mud, snow, road salt, water, sand, dust, rocks, clay, and other such types of matter I've driven over/through is not good for metal hardware and the bolts are seized. He tried for over 20 minutes to get it to budge, but it just wouldn't, and at that point they were afraid they were going to break the bolt so they stopped.

To fix it, they told me to soak it with penetrating oil once a day for the next month or so, and then I can take it back to them and they'll torch it, beat on it, and swear at it, then get a 6-foot cheater bar and hook it to a 15,000lb winch and they think it should come loose.

No more "\-[]-/" though!!





This is as close as they could get it. Passenger side is obviously still out of spec but not by too much.

Had them adjust my caster to 2.5-3 and was much better but I also have burg UCA's. That was the only way to stop rubbing on the pinch weld too! Soak that shit in PB Blaster, that stuff REALLY works!

What size? 285's or 255's? The wider 285's will give you the most rubb! You'll def need to cut out alot of the plastic liner and a cab mount chop if you plan on wheeling and stuffing them! The liner cuts easy with a utility knife.

33x11.5" M/Ts (285s), and I wheel the shit out of my truck. I have 2.5" of lift up front and 3" in the back, and I don't really have much plastic left under there (at least in the front) thanks to my tubular bumper. What do you mean by cab mount chop? I've seen guys bash in a seam weld that sticks out but never seen anyone have to cut in to the cab.

Ya, the cab mount is the first thing it will rub....but maybe not, depends! The seam weld is also the winch weld and some haven't needed to touch it but I did!

If your tires are anything close to mine, you should be ok man. All I had to do was trim the plastic fender liner. I still get SOME rubbing, but Its at full stuff. Full turn doesn't even rub.

You know your neighbor does alignments everyday..just sayin lol. Caster won't wear tires or anything at all. Does it wanna drift left? It should by the specs its set at. Caster doesn't do much except help with road crown , and make it easier to turn. Most cars are 2.5-4.5 for caster. Chrysler 300s,chargers and challengers have like 12 degrees of caster to make turning easier. All of em like to drift with road crown since they have alot of caster

DOH! I would've hit you up had I known that lol. Good to hear, and yeah the truck likes to drift to one side. Before it didn't track either left or right, which is weird. Either way I don't really care. It seems to "float" more now than it did before also, which kinda bugs me. Regardless, new tires going on tomorrow!
