    Long story short i got daystar leveling kit for the truck and incubus 17x9 wheels

    so the issue at hand is i have a weird wobble this wasnt an issue until the wheels were put on.

    is there anything i need extra other than what was provided to me in the leveling kot, so far everything is tight.

    is there anything i can do to fix the wobble i feel its almost as if the motor is misfiring thats the feeling i get (however its not the motor)

    there are alot of weights on the wheels could that be an issue

    it doesnt help that i went to get the truck aligned and it came out worse than it was before.

    before i could let go of the steering wheel and itd drift to the left alittle but not to bad now if i let go the truck almost immediately goes to the left, the real shocker is the computer system they used told the tech the alignment was in specs

    idk im at a loss almost feel like putting it back to stock

    make sure they used alignment specs for a prerunner and not just a 4x2

    thats what im thinking but what could have gone wrong the first time other than maybe a weight being slung off

    (keep in mind they were just balanced on saturday)

    how much of a lift is it that you need new UCA because the stockers dont allow the right alignment? might be the balancing in the wheels as well.

    thanks ill mention that.

    btw the guy at the shop told me because of the spacers ive hyper-extended my struts while im having a hard time wrapping my mind around his theory, is this possible it is a 2.5 inch leveling spacer.

    in my mind a leveling kit has nothing to do with the travel of the strut from how it use to be on the stock suspension

    Take baby steps, to rule out problems since you changed multiple things at once.

    Put your stock wheels on to eliminate them as a possibility and see if the problem is the alignment or the wheels.

    update the front was balanced but not the rears (only had 45 minutes to play with) steering wheel doesnt shake anymore but i can feel the same wobble in the seat im told its the rears that need to be rebalanced they were way off balance when i brought it back to them (after their initial balancing)

    the truck went on the alignment rack three times tonight and even thou the computer said it was aligned the truck still pulled to the left, im at a loss right now i dont understand how the alignment that was for the stock height worked better than the alignment they are using for the spacers which what i assume would be the stock measurements.

    how can spacers cause this much frustration with my alignment none the less the truck still has a vibration which im praying can be fixed by a rebalance

    side note** all three times the truck went on the rack the alignment was off, how can the alignment be off within 20 minutes and the computer be calibrated but still read that the alignment is off
