    2.5" toytec coverover spacer OME 2.5" lifted spring leaf pack
    i own a 05 tacoma 4x4 TRD off road edtion with moto metal 951 black 9mm offset rims. i installed a lift in my truck a few months ago and i love the lift. i put in toytec 2.5 coilover spacers and OME 2.5 rear leaf pack. right after i nstalled the lift i took it for a alignment at my local shop, and they said i ran out of camber adjustment, so i ran the truck like that for a awhile until i seen it was wearing the out side of my tire bad, so i put the factory rims back on for the winter month and send it for a another alignment, and with the factory rim on the truck my alignment is perfect.
    my question is the anything i can buy or do to fix my alingnment so i can save my tires and put my aftermarket rims back on and not break the bank
    thank boys any help would be great

    I'm confused. With the stock tires on they can align it, but with the aftermarket wheels they can't? That's the only change? Did they have to adjust the camber with the aftermarket wheels on so the tires wouldn't rub the upper control arm?

    He said after the lift he went to get it aligned and they told him he ran out of camber adjustment.

    they align the truck with the aftermarket wheels on but my camber ran out and caused my brand new BF'S to wear on the out side badly

    This doesn't make sense. The truck should align the same regardless of what wheels are on it.

    LR UCA add +2' camber / +2' caster at their neutral setting
