    just noticed that my front tires are starting to "cup" just a bit on the outer edges. i know it needs an alignment...although i have had it done 3 times in the past 2 months due to how shitty the roads are around here. getting the alignment done tomorrow.....and while its on the rack...gonna get my buddy at the alignment shop to check my upper ball joints. my truck has a very mild lift.....but no $ for any type uca's right now.

    yeah man.........a good set of uca's....like some total chaos would definitely help. with as minimal a lift as i have tho....mine really shouldnt be doing it. hopefully,the alignment will square it away.

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    Just got to stay on top of rotations a bit more. Mine tries to do it a little even with the UCAs, but with regular rotations it can be kept under control.
