    I am having some uneven tire wear on the two front tires. I put a 3" lift on the truck about 3 months ago and took it to my local toyota dealer to have them align the wheels. The tread on both front tires are wearing more on the outer part of the tires. The left tire seems to be wearing a little more than the right side but both are wearing on the outer part of the tire. Also I noticed that the steering wheel when driving straight it has too be a little to the right for it to go straight and when I let go of it pulls a little to the left. When I am looking at the truck head on it looks like the wheels are pointed inward. Does anyone have any alignment specs that work for a prerunner with 3" lift,spidertrax spacers and stock trd off road wheels. Any help would be great.

    Sounds like the alignment is off...

    Take it back, and tell them to make it right. Alignment shoutl be set to:
    0* Camber
    0* Toe
    2.5* (or so) Caster.

    If you dont have an after market UCA that corrects for lost caster after lifting, you may want to consider getting a set.
