    Just bought an 05 Tacoma SR5 about a month ago. Since then I've purchased 255/75/17 BF Goodrich tires which came with a 2 inch leveling spacer. I installed a toytec aal over the weekend. I went to get an alignment today and was told they couldnt do it. They said my axle wasnt straight. They said it was tilted a little to the right. Has anyone ever heard of this before? or know what it is?

    You might have better luck over in the suspension section or wheels and tires section so if you don't get any answers right away don't get discouraged.

    First, a question...mostly because I think the guys who said they couldn't align your truck are full of BS...are the AAL left/right specific? could they have been installed wrong? I know replacement leaf packs are side specific but have no experience with AAL's. The rear of my truck sits a little off (passenger side is a little bit forward of the driver's side) but the shop I went to had no trouble getting things aligned when I did my suspension. I think you just need to find a better shop to do the alignment...good luck!

    I agree with MTGirl about finding another shop. Also, the axel only has a little
    Room for adjustment. If you bought the truck used, see if it was in a wreck.
