    Evening Gents,

    2014 Offroad DCSB
    OME 886 springs and shocks, new rear shocks and leaf spring pack

    Ok so I put this lift on after participating in the group buy here last year. After installing the lift and UCAs I went to a local store and had an alignment done. I had read some threads on here about optimal alignment and I asked for as close to 0 Camber 0 toe and 3.0 caster as I could get. Picked it up by the end of the day and it pulled right on the highway but they would not change it as it was what I asked for and it was at the end of the day.

    I went to a 4 wheel supply store and had another alignment done and they told me upon delivery that it pulled right when braking otherwise it seemed a lot better steering wise. When I got on the freeway it still seemed to drift right a bit but not as forcefully and had a bit of wandering to it.

    Any ideas on what to try to do to fix this issue permanently? I have read that you can try changing the front tires to the other side to see if it drifts that way. Try for another alignment?

    Any suggestions are appreciated.
