    First question is am i gonna be able to drive my truck like 10 minutes from the shop to the tire shop to get the alignment done after a 3" lift or is it going to be unsafe to do so?
    Also i have read alot of different post on here about alignment spec and they all seem different so sorry for the repost but ideally what am i looking for my alignment numbers to be on my 4x4 2011 double cab tacoma?
    Thanks Guys.

    You will be fine to drive short distances. For alignment, you want:
    Toe: .05*
    Camber: .4*
    Caster: 2.1* to 3.0*

    One or two things modded... Check out the build
    not to argue, cuz i dont honestly know, but i was told that you wanted toe and camber as close to 0.0 as possible. was that misinformation from the tire guy chris? just wondering if i need to go get my alignment redone.

    With Toe at .05*, thats half of a tenth of a degree. You want it slightly posative, and at the spec I gave. .03 to .08 is fine.
