Hawaii Recon Wheel Alignment?!

Does anybody know a place where I can get a passing alignment sheet? My truck's alignment came up red in some of the tests.
Also, does recon double check those sheets?

probably will need aftermarket upper control arms. just have a friend with a stock taco go do it with your info. fuck the government, no need recon.

If you are on Oahu, Island Brake & Alignment can get you fixed up properly and have your required sheet for recon all for a really good price. Tell him that Kekoa sent you as I am a very frequent customer and used them about 15 times (all lifted trucks/SUVs). Derrick the owner is sets the standard in quality and price. You will not be disappointed and good luck, Aloha!

Body lift has nothing to do with alignments.

Try cranking your C/O's down a little. Should help with the camber.

remember for recon your alignment sheet has to be within 30 days. last check i think recon is backed up 3 months.

adjustments are made from the lower control arms camber and caster. whats the reading on the camber and caster?

Last time I called recon they were ok with the alignment paper being 6 weeks old cause that's how far the back log was.

OP try call them directly they have always been helpful

i usually can get them in specs but it all depends on how the control arm bushings are if get play or if the camber/caster adjustments are worn out too.

Had anyone be able to get their alignment on a 3" lift within specs without aftermarket UCAs?

Planning on getting the OME 885's with dakars and I want to just do it all one crack.

I can't remember exactly, but I can grab my sheet tonight when I get home (drove the car to work today) and post it up.
