    Anyone know how I could get this done? I'm assuming with the right specs I could take it to a place like Big O and have them do it.

    Also a side note, since I bought my truck (it was all done when I bought it), the steering wheel has always been a tad to the left and I was curious if that might be the case due to being out of alignment.

    Your thoughts!!

    You can adjust your tie rods to fix the steering wheel tilt.

    Buy the Firestone lifetime alignment. It pays for itself after two alignments anyway.

    just give yourself a degree or two of negative camber if u feel ur truck wandering. it wears out the insides of your tire more but gives you better handling. Next time you're behind a BMW, check out the camber of their rear wheels, its crazy negative.

    Doing the camber isnt that hard, just mark your alignment cams with a sharpy and go a degree at a time. Once you've found that perfect alignment, secure it by switching to weld washers.

    Thanks man!! I'm glad so many guys like it! I sure do!! :)

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the tip! I want to try and get it as 0 as possible because I know my Grabbers are pricey and its my DD so I'd like to save them as much as possible. Also I know that if its pretty 0 I'll get better MPG's, and as it is she gets like 1 mile to the gallon. Haha. :p

    For sure on the Bimmers though! Before the truck I had a Subaru that was pretty hellaflush. So trust me, I know camber! ;)


    Hahahahaa! I appreciate a good kick in the pants sometimes! :)
    And thank you!
