    My set up is the same except for the shocks. The plan was to take it in today for the first time to get the alignment done as well, but never made it. I am having a company that works on my tractor/trailors. I will keep you posted as to what my guy says.

    I had the same thing happen they dont specialize in aftermarket suspension and they got mine as close as they could, some will even void it because you have you altered the suspension only if you have the lifetime allignment, but as for the lower control arms thats news to me makes me laugh.

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    the caster was a little off when I got mine aligned, but they were able to get everything else in spec. Thats with 3" spacer lift and with stock UCAs too. Yours should be better than mine with the aftermarket UCAs. I'm going to the OME setup with the 885's when I have the money to buy a set of N140's and can do it in one swoop.

    You'd probably have better luck takeing it to a shop that see's more aftermarket suspension.
