    Cool thanks for the coupon! I'll call the local one to make sure they do lifted trucks.

    please let us know if they do lifted trucks. Since I don't have a garage, I'm waiting for it to warm up some to install my LR UCAs

    I just got done putting in one coilover...truck's ass was hanging out of my little apartment garage, just barely enough room to work in there. I'd had enough after one side and will probably finish sunday HAHA. And I'll post up my alignment experience.

    ^ thanks I'll give them a call. I've called a few places close to me and they all say they won't waranty (some have 12 mo warranty) the alignment because of the road condition. They may have a point: If I get the front end aligned then go out driving on these roads will have knock the alignment out?

    Yea, could get knocked out of alignment by all these layers of ice on the road. Can be similar to hitting the curb. All it really takes is one good hit and its out of spec again. Also, the increased vibration doesn't help either. I am taking my other vehicle to firestone to get realigned after the roads clear up again. The lifetime alignment is a really good deal since 2 alignments basically pays it off. Just hope a local shop can do lifted trucks.

    I ended up getting mine done at a Goodyear place a mile form my house. I was lazy and didn't want to drive very far. That happens alot.

    Anyhow, they tested the current alignment then showed me the results...after lifting the front about 1.75", it was still within spec. I had adjust to the Toytec recommended settings.
