    Does anybody know a place where I can get a passing alignment sheet? My truck's alignment came up red in some of the tests.
    Also, does recon double check those sheets?

    Body lift has nothing to do with alignments.

    Try cranking your C/O's down a little. Should help with the camber.

    remember for recon your alignment sheet has to be within 30 days. last check i think recon is backed up 3 months.

    adjustments are made from the lower control arms camber and caster. whats the reading on the camber and caster?

    Last time I called recon they were ok with the alignment paper being 6 weeks old cause that's how far the back log was.

    OP try call them directly they have always been helpful

    i usually can get them in specs but it all depends on how the control arm bushings are if get play or if the camber/caster adjustments are worn out too.
