    So i took the truck by Toyota and they serviced the tranny, Replaced the seals in the front diff, fixed the turbo sound with a new idler pulley and put in a new power steering rack and pinion/with tie rod ends. My question is should the alignment done again?

    do you have the lifetime one from firestone?

    I would just get it done since you replaced all those worn parts and that probably moved things around.

    I would get one anyways. Worn steering part replaced with new- Chances are stuff isn't lined up the same any more...Did you check the paperwork to make sure they didn't do one already??

    no i didn't. Most was under warranty and it was a pain in the butt to get them to do the work they did.

    I got mine for about 135. It's lifetime you own the truck, as often as you want. I took mine in about 4 times in a month when I did my lift.

    I have it too and intend on using it with every tire rotation. I had them do it twice in the first month after the lift and they got the caster pretty good for having stock UCA's. I think its totally worth it.

    I wish they had that up here. Gets pretty rough at $50-$100 a pop.

    They most likely re-aligned your truck.

    If they didnt, you would have probably noticed your steering wheel slightly off center.
