Blistein @ 1.75 and alignment don't seem right

i installed the 5100's last night i went to get it aligned today and I'm thinking i brought it to the wrong place! the numbers are pretty off id say here what they gave me after they aligned it... the right camber is way off and they told me that there is no adjustment for camber according to their machine..... am i right or am i wrong please let me know you opinions. and yes that is after the alignment because i told him i wanted a printout of the specs and he didn't print the before . well zoo he says.. maby i should have brought it to the dealer!

Not much to say here; you need to go to a better shop. These guys are idiots.

Yeah your camber is off it should be 0 and your caster is too low as well.

The camber adjustment is on the lower control arm mounting bolt. It's a cam type washer. It moves the contol arm in and out providing tilt to the wheel.

caster 2.4-3.1 depending on tire size (stock size 2.4 and larger get higher specs)

Try looking for a shop that specializes in 4x4's or maybe track down a 4x4 parts shop and ask them for a referral, dealers and regular shops are usually no good at this kind of thing.

His caster isnt that bad for having a lift, and stock UCA's, but his Camber is all out of wack....

You may have a little wandering, and outside tire wear.
