Alignment from Sears....

Can someone please review these numbers. I had to ask for the sheet when I normally get an alignment, but they didnt offer it to me this time. I had to ask for the sheet and when the sales guy gave it to me he said if there's any problems with the alignment I can bring it back.



Note: This is also after my OME lift. 885 Coils

I drove it 5 miles home. It feels better then it did but not getting the alignment sheet, then the sales guys reaction to the numbers when he gave me the sheet, and the bottom of the page stating that the alignment numbers are not in spec really raised a flag. The Sears guy that did the work seems like a lazy POS. He did my inspection a month ago and said he should have failed me for a missing lug, but did not mention anything about my rear pads being low. Guy seems like a stoner that just doesnt give a S***

My tires also humm a lot louder then they did before my lift and this alignment

Am I looking at possible uneven tire wear from the alignment? Should I bring it to another Sears and have them check it out? Or are these numbers alright?

toe is fine, Caster sucks (but you need different UCA's to fix that), and the Camber sucks. make them get the Camber at .4* or so, both sides.

Thank you Chris. Thats what I will do then. Would you recommend UCA's or is it still ok to drive the way it is?

I could do a better job with some string and an angle finder. Find a better mechanic to do the work. Big thing is that Camber is at ZERO, Caster may need to be sacrificed to attain that, and Toe is at ZERO. Anything less is unacceptable.

Thanks everyone for their help. Im going to go to another Sears and have them check it and realign it.. I wasn't sure if the numbers were so off because of my lift or not. I feel more confident in asking for them to fix it now. I didn't want to complain and find out thats the best I can get because of the lift.

Yes. It will drive much better, as the geometry will be corrected. If you want less expensive UCA's, the Light Racing ones are very good.

+1, why are you going to Sears?
Go to 4 different Sears shops and you'll get 6 different opinions of what work needs to be done... even if you let all 4 of them "fix" it.

New numbers. Guy agreed to do it but was very reluctant. If the original sears I paid for alignment doesn't issue me a credit or customer satisfaction discount I will no longer continue my automotive business with them

Note: before numbers are not the real before numbers. Guy said he didn't check the before numbers

I only use sears for occasional (to lazy to do myself) oil changes, mounting and balancing tires, and alignments. I would never take it there for work other then those 3
