Truck is finally level

Got my 2" spacer on my truck and its starting to look better. Now I need a alignment shop.....

I know I know everyone shits on spacer lifts but it was just to level it out.

If you plan on adding more to your truck that might throw your alignment out like new shocks or ucas I would consider getting a lifetime alignment from firestone. Its a little bit more, but they do a good job and I have gotten my money worth that's for sure. 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!

I think i'll give network alignment or firestone a try next alignment. Lifetime = win for just a few bucks more

As far as Firestone. I can see if Brad at the shop in downtown Phoenix will still do the lifetime for modified trucks. He was willing to when Nathan was working there. A couple guys got it then. He drives a lifted FJ so he understands.

I just had some 5100's installed, clipped at 1.5", at SDHQ. Truck tracks nice but the steering wheel was off center when I got the truck back. If I center the wheel while driving the truck it now pulls to the right. Sucks for a brand new truck with 1200 miles on it. How hard is it to do a front end alignment? Sure would be nice to get something done right the first time.

For toe, I just measured the distance between the rear of the tires and the front. I jacked it up and spun the tire while using a nail as a scribe to get an accurate vertical line in the tire as a measuring point, centered the steering wheel, then adjusted the tie rods keeping everything centered. Obviously do toe after all other adjustments, and when the front side of the tires measure 1/4" less than the rear you are good to go. I set mine up with 0* of toe so it corners better in the dirt, but it will wander a little and is not advisable if you are a tard. My steering wheel is centered, and it corners like it's on rails.

Yes, They said they aligned it after the installation of the front 5100's. It was part of the install package. The truck tracks nicely, just the steering wheel is off about 5-10 degrees.

Toe in/out seems perfect. It's just the steering wheel that's off. I'd bet the tie-rod end adjustment sleeves just need to be turned 1/8 of turn out(R) and the other in(L) to adjust the steering wheel correctly.
