    When you take your truck to a decent shop for alignment, their computer has all the factory specs already. It does not matter if you have Bilsteins or a lift, the specs are the same.

    Search this section and you will see plenty of alignment printout scans that show what the proper numbers are.

    zero camber, zero toe & somewhere around 2.4 - 2.8 degrees of caster so it doesn't wander. Mine was perfect like that. Not thinking the frame or suspension has changed from 05s - 11s. Check with Chris4x4, he'll know for sure..............

    Actually you want some toe else it will wander. Between +.05 and +.1 degree is correct. You need that because it's a rear wheel drive and the bushings give a little.

    We'll both be out of toe doing much of anything on these trucks, never had toe stay put. That is what I was always having adjusted every time I had an alignment. I had 3 yr alignment so I went at least twice a yr maybe more if mods occurred but yeah, slightly pointed in so they roll straight and not scrub the edges. OP, you may want to save for or invest in some aftermarket UCAs to get the caster back because you won't have enough caster with oem UCAs lifting 2.5. Caster will not wear tires but will annoy the shit out of you wandering on uneven surfaces or in wind on frwy. Toe and camber out is what wears tires. I ran mine with low caster just long enough to score some LR UCAs. If they go for caster then the camber suffers with oem adjustability. You can go with less lift until you get some and compromise tho by living with 1.75 but then that means multiple strut disassembly/reassembly to change the settings. Truck was magically better with the caster right.
