    That's a good price. I would have them do it.

    Thanks for the clarification. I'm not a gearhead but I've seen the process. :D

    This is what I may do, just as a side note that may be a mil discount price because I asked about it, but I'm not positive

    Just for clarification, is it possible the tires are cupping? I would know right? The alignment should remedy this right?

    Cupping is common. It is caused by poor alignment. The easiest way to tell is you can rub your hand along the tread. If it feels uneven it is starting to cup. Once the cupping is severe, your tires will make a lot of noise when driving fast.

    I think I'm noticing tread wear on the outside edge, meaning my toe might be off so I'm thinking I'll take it to the shop and rotate and balance to see if it helps

    Also to confirm if I'm having new tread wear or just from when it was having alignment issues previously

    Too much toe in on that wheel will cause outside wear as the tire scrubs down the
    road like this as viewed from overhead: / |

    Also too much +camber on that wheel will similarly cause such wear because the
    wheel may be like this as viewed straight on from drivers seat: \ |

    Sorry but I have not been following this thread so I may have missed some things but if this were mine I would have the diagnostic angles SAI and Included Angle printed out as part of what they give you. Any decent alignment place should know which button to push to include these as they are determined anyway in the machine and should cost nothing additional. These angles can be very useful tools to assist one in determining if something is bent.

    Just had my LCA bushings replaced and now I have full adjustment for my caster again. (Was only able to get 2 degrees before the replacement)

    He basically said that the other aligner was just saying whatever and that he has the best system and that there's "no way" you could adjust my camber. And that if I took it to a 3rd aligner id find out that it was still wrong haha. He paid me back in cash, wouldn't put it back on card haha

    My alignment is good now, the rumble that came after the fact was the needle bearing.

    It drives like a new truck now
