Uneven Wearing

I currently have stock wheels and tires on my sr5 2010 Tacoma along with Billstein 5100s. However my tires are wearing uneven, even though I have had my wheels aligned before. Does this mean I need a new UCA?

means your alignment is off. what are your 5100s set at. what pressure you have in the tires.

They are set at the highest setting, I do not know my tire pressure off the top of my head. Should I lower the height of my shocks then?

Yeah, sounds like your alignment might need to be redone.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

A good alignment tech can get it close....aligned twards the max ends of the spectrum, but to get it perfect, UCA's are a good choice.

I am getting my oil change down today, I will ask Toyota to align it because I don't know of any good alignment techs.
