    I have a appointment booked for wed for the alignment on my truck, i was wondering do I need to tell them what to align it to with the 3" lift or is this pretty straight forward and easy for them, he has a computerized laser alignment machine??? thanks for any help on this one :)

    Wow thanks Chris I was hoping you would chime in.
    I don't have Caster correcting UCA's though just stock so what should the caster be then? and thanks :)

    Set Toe and Camber to 0* first, then tell them you want the most caster they can get without affecting the Toe and Camber.

    Chris one more ? I took the truck for a little test spin after I finished the lift install, and I took it up to 50+ mph and I have zero vibrations at any speed, I put the axel shim kit in but left out the diff. drop kit as I could not get the diff bolts to turn even with the impact I rented, should I get it put in or leave it for now?? what would be best. thank you

    Your good. 2.1* is acceptable, but more is better, up to 2.8*.

    Is there any cons to leaving it out such as premature wear on the cv's ?

    No. The Diff drop only lowers the front diff 1/2" at the axels, and given the length of the axel, thats only about 2*. If that. Not enough to worry about. :)

    Stock specs, Im guessing for your truck, as you didnt give me tire size, is:
    Toe: 0.044* +/- 0.108*
    Camber: 0.47* +/- 0.75*
    Caster: 1.93* +/- 0.75*
