    I'm going to be installing the Toytec ultimate lift kit and LR UCAs this Wed!

    As the front settles and gets lower will it affect the alignment? If thats the case, after it is installed, how much should I drive to let the suspension settle in before getting an alignment?

    -Thanks!

    My red Toytec coils settled within a couple of days. After a day or so, i re-adjusted, then again after about 500 miles. They have been stable since. I've seen posts that suggest taking a detailed measurement from hub center to fender opening when getting it aligned, and if it settles re-adjust to that same height. Me, i'd just wait. My truck handled fine after the lift, no need to rush.
