I am putting my UCAs on monday. What should I set the caster to? I have them set at 0, right now I think. I will be close to 3" of lift in the front when I put these on.

0 is good. Adjust the balljoint camber setting all the way out. They way when the tech finish their adjustments with the cams they can adjust the ball joint to fine tune the camber settings.

Yea. At least 2.5 actual caster on both sides is good. Not to be confused with the caster setting on the LR UCAs which is set at 0.

Nick, if you have issues with the alignment shop. Autoline of America is Deer Park off Center St is the place to go.

No cab mount rubbing, just the driver side flare. I have about 1-1/4" taco lean right now with no spanner wrench :-/

I'd recommend the place where Lyndall said, I've been to NTB for an alignment about 6 times, they probably aligned it 'correctly' twice.

If you do go, I'll bet you money their printer is broke..

I always admit it when i fuck up but, this time i got ran off the road by a bigger truck with a big grille guard/full replacement. Was doing the usual backroading when it came around the corner with no headlights on.

It was either hit truck or fence. So fence it was. No dents this time tho since i went head on into it. Just pushed my grille and headlight in, thus breaking clips and bending shit, and scratched the hood pretty bad from barbwire on it. I swear im about to lift it back up and fully armor it since it seems i just cant catch a break
