    Do I need an alignment after I do the whole setup?

    Here is a picture of what I'm doing. This isn't all the equipment I have though, but it is the main parts.

    Get some UCA while you're at it. Don't be like me and pay for an alignment twice.

    Nice kit you got there! I'm looking at getting the same. What coils you got? ^^^I agree should look into getting some UCA's.

    I would recommend an alignment for sure. Since you will be replacing the front shocks/coils it will need to be put back into spec

    Mine couldn't handle a curve at 5MPH without squealing after I got my OME lift. Alignment will be a must.

    i out the ome 3 inch kit with the 885 springs on my 06 access cab about 4 months ago. alingment is a must. havent done uca yet due to money. it lines up pretty close but the tire will wear on outside alittle due to too much camber, still very good ride tho.

    I was just wondering because I wanted to install it myself then just take it in to get aligned, but I live 30 minutes from an alignment shop. Would that be to far to drive it before it gets aligned?

    I think it would be ok. You're not going to wear out the tires significantly in that distance. IIRC, the specs for the lift require that you drive ten miles (or something small) and recheck all the torques on the bolts. That would be the primary concern for me.
    While you're driving, just don't go crazy 80mph around corners on the way there. Take it easy and you'll be ok.
    I think. :

    I did the same thing (installed myself and drove to an alignment shop) and I had no issues.

    What are the torque specs for a 2000? I have searched and can't find anything
