    Front Right

    Camber (Specified Range -0.1 - 0.6): 0.7 degrees (before: 0.6)
    Caster (Specified Range 1.8 - 3.3): 3.8 degrees (before: same)
    Toe (Specified Range -0.07 - 0.13): -0.03 degrees (before: -0.24)
    SAI (Specified Range 10.3 - 11.8): 9.9 degrees (before: 10.0)
    Included Angle (Specified Range 9.3 - 12.3): 10.6 degrees (before: same)

    How does it look?

    The guy at the shop said that my camber adjustments were "maxed out" due to my lift (2.5" with Camburg coilovers and UCAs), and couldn't make them any better.

    My car pulled to the right when I brought it in, but it didn't get any better. Is that caused by the camber and/or caster on the right, front tire?

    Right Camber needs to be brought down to near what the other side is.....You have alot of Caster. Have it dropped to about 2.6*

    Is it true what he said about camber adjustment being "maxed out" because of my lift?

    How bad it 3.9 degree caster?

    I dont think so. You want LESS camber on the right side. Not more. And you want less Caster.

    ok the reason its pulling right is the camber. u have too much camber on the right side. a difference (or total) of .5* or more will cause a pull. what needs to happen is the right side needs to come down on both camber and caster. the left side needs to drop caster to try and match where the right side ends up. but i like where the camber is on the left side. dont pay attention to IA or SAI they wont be in when u lift a truck. id bring it to a shop who knows how to align lifted trucks. also make sure the guy didnt mean that u have a cam or eccentric thats SIEZED rather than "maxed out". two completely different things. I align lifted Toyotas almost everyday including memebers on here....lmk how this goes pm me if u wanna....
