    Ok, I'm sure this has been answered but I can't seem to find it. Sorry in advance. I just crunk up my Danohoes a bit and I'm guessing my lift in the front is between 2.5" and 2.75". I plan on taking it to get an alignment check here in the next few days and I have factory UCA's. Should I tell them to set anything specifically or should it just be within factory specs?? Not sure if I need to tell them something different since it's lifted and all. Any help would be great. Pic of new wheels and tires :)

    You wont be able to achieve ideal caster settings with the stock arms. Just tell them 0 toe 0 camber and as much caster as they can get without affecting the camber.

    Thanks Taco. Will the adjustments listed above negatively affect tire wear in any way??

    Always shoot for 0*Toe, 0*Camber 2.4*-3.1* Caster....How close you'll get is a crap shoot with the stock arms.

    Most places won't take "requests" for certain numbers- If they get it into factory and still have room to adjust to what you want they may...but they may not.

    Thanks Brunes. I used to work at the shop that I take my truck to so I may have some "pull" with the numbers. Anywhere btw 2.4 and 3.1 will be fine for the caster??

    Yeah...I think you'll find those numbers are the stock settings- With a mild lift (aka no custom fab parts etc etc) stock settings should be just fine.

    And I wish I worked at a auto shop...I don't have all the tools they do...
