Get that fixed. It's gonna confuse the hell out of your VSC and you're gonna get undesired activation on either left or right hand curves, depending on which way it's cocked.

Firestone destroyed my cam bolts and I had to have them re welded at Shuman's Auto. I now only use Shuman's for alignments, cost is $59.

drove straight when I picked it up, I personally drove it back from alignment. If you're unhappy with it bring it back and well send it back over to Network, no cost to you

Like I said.. the truck drives straight, just the steering wheel is off a little. If I center the steering wheel while driving the truck pulls to the right.

Bring it back down and we'll get it taken care of! If its easier Network can also handle it for you directly, I alerted them of the issue this morning.

And there are firestones all accross the usa so if you're off doing something and you knock your alignment out you don't have so pay 75 every time. Just my 2 cents!
Firestone would not honor my lifetime alignment because I added a lift and that voids the terms

Got the truck back from Network and now the wheel is off center to the right..... I can't believe it. I'm think the guy adjusted a little too much. He needs to go back and readjust just back half of what he adjusted. I watched him and it took a whole 2mins to adjust.

To be fair, it's actually really hard to get it aligned right.

I was today at Network ALignment on Cave Creek Rd & Cactus and I talked with Scott Stockwell about a discount for TacomaWorld. Their regular price for lifted trucks is $70 , he said that will do it for 60$ if you mention TacomaWorld Club. He might do it for 55$ if there's gonna be more members checking in.
Just mention that Shumans does them for 55 bucks and I'm pretty sure they will mach that!
