    Got my 2" spacer on my truck and its starting to look better. Now I need a alignment shop.....

    I know I know everyone shits on spacer lifts but it was just to level it out.

    Thanks, that place is just down the street from my job. If you don't mind me asking what did it cost?

    If you plan on adding more to your truck that might throw your alignment out like new shocks or ucas I would consider getting a lifetime alignment from firestone. Its a little bit more, but they do a good job and I have gotten my money worth that's for sure. And there are firestones all accross the usa so if you're off doing something and you knock your alignment out you don't have so pay 75 every time. Just my 2 cents!

    X2 They've done mine everytime I've needed an adjustment and the truck has left there with the steering wheel straight and trackin straight so Im happy.

    I wish firestone would do LT trucks, thats just a no brainer. $85 for a lifetime alignment!!!!!! :eek:

    As far as Firestone. I can see if Brad at the shop in downtown Phoenix will still do the lifetime for modified trucks. He was willing to when Nathan was working there. A couple guys got it then. He drives a lifted FJ so he understands.

    I just had some 5100's installed, clipped at 1.5", at SDHQ. Truck tracks nice but the steering wheel was off center when I got the truck back. If I center the wheel while driving the truck it now pulls to the right. Sucks for a brand new truck with 1200 miles on it. How hard is it to do a front end alignment? Sure would be nice to get something done right the first time.

    Yes, They said they aligned it after the installation of the front 5100's. It was part of the install package. The truck tracks nicely, just the steering wheel is off about 5-10 degrees.

    Toe in/out seems perfect. It's just the steering wheel that's off. I'd bet the tie-rod end adjustment sleeves just need to be turned 1/8 of turn out(R) and the other in(L) to adjust the steering wheel correctly.
