    Hard to read but your caster seems pretty low

    think you need aftermarket uca's to get into spec dude. (light racing/camburg/total chaos)
    or lower the truck.

    I am not certain about your numbers, but I figured I would give you something to compare again.

    The truck is a 2013, not a 2012 (the shop probably didnt have 2013 in their computer), and the tires are 265/70/17 (although wouldnt make a difference in alignment IMHO). Bilstein 5100's in front at 1.75 and rear is normal 0. 2013 has the TSB, so In my TRD Sport I have 3 leafs + the 1 upside down one. Rear Firestone RideRite airbags, but only 5psi in them, so basically non-existent. Nothing else done in the suspension.

    Camber and toe effect tire wear not caster , your camber and toe look fine

    Take it for a spin and see how it tracks

    It may feel fine , but you may have little or no caster adjustment left with the stock UCA's , so , maybe

    Depends on your end use

    I personally have LR UCA's , which are an adjustable ball joint style , because I was more concerned with getting the alignment in spec and I liked the fact that the BJ was booted , versus more articulation with a uniball

    I believe they both carry LR UCA's but I think there is a good deal to be had on them , hang on
