    I just got my truck lifted with a Fabtech 6" lift kit and have an big issue... apparently the leaf springs that was installed was drilled incorrectly at the factory and the center pin that goes in the middle of the right springs is a centimeter off from the left side... I was advise this from Tire Kingdom and my local 4x4 shop when getting my alignment. My buddy drove behind me and told me that it looks like my truck was going side ways... The truck pulls to the left and i had the alignment done 3 times in the last week...

    I have asked numerous times for the alignment print out so i can post the result but their printer is never working....

    Also, my truck seems to "wander" all over the road and from searching the forums, i can only find info for UCA helping 3" lifts.

    Steering vibration above 40mph is present

    Any help or suggestions would be great!

    Get to measuring. Center of front wheel to center of back wheel, Front cross member to rear axle, etc. If one side is longer than the other, get it fixed by them for F'ing up. If they wont, move it yourself. It shouldn't be that hard.
