    I'm lifting my truck this saturday 3". Icon suspension in the front, walker evans and an aal in the rear. No one around me is open on saturdays and sundays to do an alignment though and i'm just wondering how long i can go (mileage wise) without an alignment. Would i be okay if i put a couple hundred miles on and got an alignment monday or tuesday?
    thanks

    In my sig
    You can put as many miles as your tires will allow. I added a 1/2 spacer a few months ago. Within 2 weeks of driving the outer edges were feathering pretty badly, so I wouldn't drive around to much with it out of alignment.

    You can get just as far as the alignment shop... My truck wasn't aligned for the longest time and it'll just wear down your front tires, shake a helluva lot, pull to the left/right, and piss you right off.
