    I finally put my lift on yesterday and I couldnt be happier:D. I went with Billies all around set at 0 and went with Toytec AAL and Eibach coils. I will put pics up once I am out of work.

    --I do have a question though. I know your supposed to get an alignment after a lift but why exactly? My truck doesnt pull or anything, but I wasnt sure if theres another reason to get it aligned.

    Enlighten me please b/c I dont want to possibly damage anything, and I'll get those pics up asap. Thanks!

    When you lift a truck, you alter the factory alignment. Your wheels will actually be tilted slightly which could reduce the life of your tires among other things. So it is advised to get an alignment to correct this. Not necessary just a good idea.

    Yup, I wasnt sure if it was just me put I thought my wheels did look slightly tilted in. I'll get it aligned after work and post up some pics.

    Now it's time to save and pick out wheels and tires!

    changing suspension components will wreck the fine (fine as in "small," not fine as in "exellent") adjustment on toe, caster, camber.

    The side effect of this is your tires will wear poorly.

    I actually had *negative* caster after I lifted, which made the truck feel squirrely. Without upper-control-arms my caster is still out of spec, but at least it's basically zero now.
