Alignment Issues

Just curious but... I got my lift set at around 3'' and I have the TC UCA's yet my alignment is still not that great. In town driving sure no big deal but on the free way I seem to veer right as soon as I let go of the steering wheel.

Anyone else have any issues? I went to big O for the alignment and even went back once already because it did not feel right. I am gonna feel like a dick taking it in there 3 times

bring it somewhere else, and see what they say. Check your airpressure in the tires also.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Take it somewhere else. Tell them to set it as follows
Toe: 0*
Caster: 2.4* to 3.1*
Camber: 0*

Where did u pull those numbers from?
Right now they set it at

Left front:

Toe .21

Caster 3.6

Camber -.1

Right Front

Toe -.1

Caster 3.4

Camber .1

What kinda pisses me off is I am taking it there to get it aligned and they just plug in make and model into a computer and it spits out some stock values so thats what they put it at. My truck doesnt look anything close to stock so common sense would say that these values are not accurate for this truck DUH

if you lift the truck correctly, yes they set the values to stock height. same as lowering

edit: 38 psi must ride like a brick..try setting it at 35
