    Howdy,

    I just happened to look at my alignment #s from a while back and noticed in the Secondary Angles section that it reads "Setback -0.2".

    It's been bugging me that my 32" tires are so close to the rear of the front fender flare even with about 2.5" lift. Is this "setback" the culprit?

    Can this "setback" be made positive to essentailly move the front wheels forward; like, could I set this to +0.5" to move my wheels toward the front of the wheel well?

    My alignment sheet does not have a minimum/maximum recommendation for setback listed.

    Thanks

    Ok, so I did a little research: "setback" is the measurement that the wheels are towards the rear from center. Apparently my wheels are back just a little.

    New question: How do I set-forward? Is there an adjustment or will I be juggling 5 things trying to get them forward?
