    I have had my leafs and shocks installed. Front shocks are on the middle, 1.75''. I am at work, on duty 24 hour shift. My neighbor did the install and left it at the house toady. My son says it has a noticable rake. I want to know about tire alignment. I want the rear to settle some as it probably will, but would like to drive it tomorrow. So will driving it 100-200 miles on new tires set a wear pattern on the new tires. I will get it aligned on Monday morning. Thanks for an opinion on the tire wear.

    With that setting on the ride height adjustable 5100's your probably good to go for a few miles til alignment but with noticeable rake I'm wondering about the 5 leaf pack you had installed on the rear, was it done ?....:confused::confused::D
