    So I lifted my truck a few days ago and got an alignment yesterday. I forgot to do before measurements, but I found some from someone with an '06 AC so I'm using those (20" in the front and 21.75" in the rear).

    My current measurements after installing my Radflos were:
    FD - 22.75"
    FP - 23.5"
    RD - 25"
    RP - 26.5"

    I'm on a level surface yet, I can't see any evidence of Taco lean, which I find interesting. Any thoughts?

    I'm also hoping someone can comment on my CV angles to put my mind at ease...

    Seems like you got a ton of rear lift

    Can't you just adjust the Radflos to correct for your lean ?

    I can adjust the Radflos and I think I made a mistake on my rear springs. I put the + spring on the passenger side and the - spring on the driver side, however I was told that the Dakars are not side dependent.

    I can't even tell there is any lean. My real question was about my CV angles. Are they too steep?

    Okay thanks!

    Will bringing the FD side up to the FP side lift the RD side?

    That looks quite high in the back to me. What's that on the floor your parked over?

    How is it driving?

    I assume you will be throwing some bigger donuts on there:D.

    It's driving great. Not pulling or not wandering. Barely any, if at all, vibrations after the alignment.

    285/70/17s will be going on eventually. Probably MT/Rs. I was thinking about getting them this weekend, but I'd rather save the tread wear for my overlanding trip across the country.

    Swap sides on the Dakars

    They are not side specific per se , but a + means that particular pack is over spec so it would be better suited on the driver's side

    Thanks for the info. Truck is looking good as well! Swap sides on the Dakars and you should be closer to level in the back. Glad to hear no vibrations!

    Swapping sides on the Daks will help your front measurement difference as well
