    After installing Wheeler 2in AAL and Allpro shackle flip, I now have an issue with the rear end out of alignment.
    Went to align trk after installing Icon C/O and BuiltRight UCA's and couldn't get into good specs.
    Went to the toyota frame shop, said frame was straight, but rear end out of alignment, so it was throwing the front out of whack.
    Shop said it was like 26deg out,(26 seems alot) what was out not sure, he was sorta of vague, but maybe toe. That would also mean 1 tire would be toe out and other be in. Other than pulling up the toe out tire
    Any suggestions??

    Camber -1.3
    Toe .46
    RR
    Cam .7
    Toe -.21

    Usually a good alignment shop will do this regardless. What is holding you back from simply getting the truck aligned?

    Waiting on quote now
    I would think loosening u bolts to get rear to align would be standard procedure
    Someone posted on TW there is small amount of play in the rear
    But he sounded like it would be a big deal or something to that effect.
    Trk is at the shop now

    Your RR wheel is further back and your LR id further forward.
    Your LR is tilted in and right rear is tilted out.
    Have you tweaked the rear axle ???

    IT shows the signs of being hit the LR quarter towards the pass front quarter.

    You really need to double check your axle mounting which would put you close.
    Wish i knew your thrust line. As far as your camber you have a issue there.

    How was this truck wearing tires before you did all this work?
    If anything it's going to dog track with the right rear hanging out per say.

    I think you said i was getting aligned now but I would bring it to the Toyota dealer to align it if you haven't. They charge the same price whether you do a front align or all 4 wheel alignment. I just had mine done this past weekend there for $68. I asked for a front end alignment but they had done all four for me since they don't charge extra for the rear.

    Getting trk back in a minute
    Going to put stock ubolts and take out AAL then try and have it aligned
    I have access to an alignment machine
    Took it to toyota frame shop to make sure there is no frame damage and they are the 1 that said couldn't align since the rear end is out of whack
    On a 4 wheel align, they can't leave off the rear align mirrors and just align front, its a package deal, machine won't work

    And NO I don't want to be that guy /\
