    I recently installed a leveling kit on my truck and soon after I began to experiemce alignment problems with the right/front wheel. The base of the tire angles inward quite a bit and I was wondering if anyone knew what might be the problem. I would like to try and fix the problem before I spend money on upgraded wheels/tires. Thanks guys

    U need an alignment whenever u lift or lower a vehicle, it sounds like the toe adjustment is out, camber is probably out too

    yes, I had it aligned the same day that I installed the leveling kit. I had it re-aligned because it was still under tye "alignment warranty" from Firestone but the problem is still there.

    Did you get an alignment spec sheet from them? What are your caster and camber angles?

    How was your alignment before? If your tires were out and then u aligned it, you might have radial pull
