    Garbage. Pure garbage.
    Yes sir. Need to get to know the folks at the shop. Been going to the same tire shop for years and when my tpms died they just put in rubber stems and let me go on my way.

    lame. would they put rubber stems if you drop off the wheels (off the truck)? definitely a hassle though

    There is a way around it. Bring the tires in loose (don't drive your truck in) and tell them you bought them used and your truck is a 2003. They won't care then

    Yeah, he asked if it was going on the truck or another. I said truck. That's where I fucked up. I'll go to another americas tire and have it done that way. Thanks.

    I brought my old set in and had them pull the TPMS and said I was selling them and just needed them to hold air. No problems.

    So tired of shitty alignment shops... recommended local place is a collision repair and doesn't take alignment appointments. They stuffed me all week but said bring it in Friday. Alignment guy wasn't there :mad:

    Had to go to work right away. Cursory search in toll plaza traffic brought up a shop. Called em said no sweat. Had my dad bring it in for me.

    Just picked it up. Flabbergasted at the caster o_O

    I'm going back Monday morning to fix. They'll let me be in the work bay. @jberry813 can you tell me how my cams look? Pretty please?

    I can't fuckin stand those guys. Fubar'd my oil drain plug on my first gen. Accused me of coming in without a center cap. Wouldn't even go look for it. Then they did and it was right there. Flipped my friends dad PT cruiser :)rofl:) on a test drive. He hires fuckin idiots. Trust me, I went to high school with half of em

    That looks like utter shit. You can definitely get more caster out of those and still keep camber in check

    @BudMan if they are letting you in the shop bay, try this:

    Max the front eccentrics shorter (head of the eccentric is closest to the frame as possible) and max the rear eccentrics longer (head of the eccentric is farthest from the frame as possible). This would be max caster.
    Then rotate the rear eccentric shorter until you can get camber in spec.
