    I couldn't find a recent post on here about this but does anybody else have the worst alignment issues. I get positive camber like a son of a bit**. I just about have to get my alignment done every 3 months without even taking it off road. Ive noticed this happening before I even lifted it and got bigger tires and there is nothing else we can see causing this.. Im lost and annoyed

    I have the same issue. After 25k miles my tires were noticeably more worn on the outer edge than on the inner. Hell even looking at the truck face on you can see the positive camber. I dont know what the f' is going on but the dealership will need to fix this as I can't go through a new set of tires every 25k miles

    I bitched out the dealer when i first bought my truck and needed one done the next service i was pissed and everytime they blame it on me so I gave up on that.

    As far as shop some ass hole ran a red light and hit me in my front in the body shop took it to have its 3rd alignment but some shop well needless to say they were worthless i had to take it back to them 4 times cause my steering wheel was cricked as hell but they didnt charge me but I just go where ever now cause its not their fault toyota is just retarded.

    1. Are you saying that your truck gets aligned good; and the alignment is moving every 3 months?
    2. Or are you saying that you just have bad camber and that you have your truck aligned every 3 months hoping that you'll get better numbers??

    If it's the first one? Then the guys doing the alignment is Morons! They aren't torquing the bolts properly.

    If it's the second one? It will never change!:D

    So are you saying that They set your camber to 0* and 3 months later its Positive??
    So you're saying somehow it's MOVING?????"?

    If this is TRUE? Then bad camber is the least of your worries!

    More than likely you need a set of UCA's! I really doubt that if you're running 285's? That your Camber was ever 0*.

    You say you have a 2" spacer up front. Is that the thickness of the spacer or the amount of lift?

    No? I didn't put any words in your mouth? It just sounded like you were getting offended & upset?
    So I guess my help wasn't appreciated. That's all.
