anyone have alignment issues with the 5100's?

thanks.

Dealer had to do a lot of adjustment on my '09 set at 0.85, said it was close but they got it. The 1.75 setting may have it right on the edge. Did you change tires and wheels as well?

im going to put 265/70/17 duratracs on the stock wheels, i have been told by others that have them that they'll fit with everything stock. i just wanted to level the front a bit with the 5100's, but might not if it's going to be a problem getting it properly aligned.

That's close enough to the stock tire size and shouldn't be a problem. Get it aligned with the wheels and tires you are going to use on it, though. If you haven't changed tire sizes or wheels yet, they *should* be able to align it even at 1.75. But, it may be right on or just past the edge and they may only be able to get it close. Some people are OK with it being close, others want it in spec, your call in the end. Going from 65 to 70 shouldn't make a big difference.
