    Hey guys,
    I'm lifting the truck this weekend with billy 5100, toytec aal 2", cb drop, 1/4" driver spacer, shims, and new u bolts.

    I have an appointment for alignment on Monday but just realized.. Maybe I should let it settle first?

    How long should wait to get the truck aligned?? Or is the alignment right after ok?

    Monday alignment should be fine. You didn't specify what setting you were putting the front 5100s at, but I put mine on the .85 setting and drove it about 100 miles before aligning. The camber was out and the toe was off, but not too bad.

    I aligned immediately after installation of 5100s @ 1.75 and went back for another alignment a few months later.....

    .02

    (Lifetime alignment packages are a good investment, IMO)

    Homertaco grill, Light Racing UCA's, 2.8" front lift (5100's at 0.85 setting and Eibach springs) 2" AAL with rear 5100's, Wet Okole seat covers fr/ bk. 17 x 9 Incubus Crusher wheels w/ 4.5" backspacing. 30% tinted front windows.
    I have the 5100s at 0.85 with Eibach springs and got 3.5" of lift right off the bat. Took 4 days to settle to 2.6" where it has stayed. I say wait a bit longer if you can, or get the lifetime alignment pkg. as stated above.

    I got mine aligned at Firestone, get their life time alignment. Best investment when you lift your truck.
