    I will soon be replacing my upper control arms with Light racing control arms to correct the poor control of my truck and feathering of my tires. So I can be very specific to the alignment shop can someone give me a solid recommendation on the alignment setpoints? My truck has a 3" lift with 265/75-16 off-road tires with factory rims. My truck is a 2008 4-door TRD off road edition. No other mods to the suspension other than the 3" lift. thanks!

    Ok not to steal the thread but what if the caster exceeds 3.1*? because when I got my alignment done I was at 3.2* and ended up bumping it up another 1.0* so I didn't rub so bad on the fender closest to the doors

    Its not a bad thing. The wheel may sit further back in the wheel well (asuming you are running aftermarket UCAs).
