    Just wondering - This 02 Tacoma is my first lifted vehicle. I bought it used. It has a Fabtech kit, and is lifted about 3". I noticed a little uneven wear on the front end, so I'm about to get it aligned, although it seems to go very straight down the road - no big problems. I was just wondering if you have more alignment problems in general with a lift kit installed.

    Thanks

    When lifting, the geometry goes out. It can be brought back pretty close to OEM specs, but it will be near the max recomended adjustments. Many people get aftermarket UCA's (Upper Control Arms) that correct for these issues. Idealy, you want your Camber and Toe set as close to 0* as possible, if not right at 0*. You want the Caster between 2.2* to 2.9* or so.
