    Thats what I thought too which is why I went with the 1.75. So how bad whould it be if I just kept it as is? I'm assuming the only damage would be uneven tread wear I suppose?

    Yeah do this. Have them get the toe and camber good first, then worry about caster. Caster has nothing to do with tire wear, toe and camber do. Having the caster low like that will only cause wandering at high speeds.

    And if they are too retarded to get it any where close demand your money back.

    I went to the dealership to have the alignment done, 3,000 miles thus far and the tire wear is normal.

    Why the fuck is the camber off like that? The caster I can see being low but camber should end up much closer than that. I'd say UCAs for caster and different alignment place. Truck must drive like complete ass like that. You wanna end up with 0 camber and toe with 2.5 +/- .5 of caster.
