    I just got my OME lift kit on the other day. Slapped on a pair of Light Racing UCAs also. Got my alignment done at Sears today. How are my alignment specs? Where should my specs be since the geometry of the truck has been altered with the lift kit? Attached photos of my alignment specs.

    If I understand it correctly, they where just adjusting the "before" numbers to between the "specific" numbers to correct the alignment. The "actual" numbers you have right now are all between the "specific" numbers so it should be good.

    From what chris4x4 said alignment specs should be,
    camber: 0
    toe: 0
    caster: 2.4-3.1

    With my light racings on, shouldn't I be closer to 2.4 on caster or do I have to make a "special" request?

    I would guess that it has to be requested, but don't quote me on that

    your fine where you are from the numbers it shouldn't pull so unless the steering wheel is off center or it wanders on the freeway it's near perfect

    I have the same set up as you. I told the tech that I had adj. joints and I got my truck back and I have 2.2* left and 1.8* right front CAMBER settings. Caster and Toe are at 0*. My steering wheel was slightly cocked and they fixed that but I have been following this post http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/su...r-lr-uca-install-will-more-castor-help-2.html

    I do have some bump steer but not all of the time. I am going to go back and tell the tech (who never touched the adj. joints) that he needs to do it over again. I am going to have them set at 3.0* of Caster.

    Grillcraft, Rear leaf TSB, 5100's at .85, with Eibachs, 265/70/17 BF Goodrich AT/S Tires, Hella 500's behind Grill, Kenwood KDC X995 H/U all Boston Acoustic speakers, JL Audio subs, Kenwood XR5 S amp, ATX Chrome 17x8 wheels
    So I get my Eibachs, 5100's, 1/4 inch Drivers spacer, and Light Racing UCA's put in Tuesday. What should I tell the guy to get my alignment to? He did my front 5100's already, and the alignment was awesome. Never wandered, nothing. I could let go of the steering wheel and it would go straight. So let me what specs Chris 4X4 and I will make sure it is done. Thanks for all your time.
