    Good Morning All.
    How do I align the rear wheels. i just bought this used SR5 TRD PRE-RUNNER, and it seem that my rear end is trying to pass me on the left side. Any help would be most greatful.

    There are no adjustments to Align the rear of our trucks. Sounds like something isn’t right with how your leaf springs are mounted, or you’ve got a bent frame.

    Welcome! By loosening the U bolts, the leaf pack / axle can be adjusted (aligned).

    X2 what was said. Maybe the bed is slightly tweaked? Check where the bed and cab meet. Are the gaps symetrical?

    Welcome to TW :wave:

    Sounds like you leaf pack center pin is loose causing the rear axle to "dog leg" out to the left side. Fix that and it should drive straight. BTW there's no alignment adjustments for the rear end. It's a fixed setup.
