    I just bought a 2002 Toyota Tacoma 2 wheel drive regular cab 2.7 truck with only 70K miles. I bought it from the original owner who never did anything to it but change the oil. I believe him as it took me 2 days to clean the insides... Anyway, It needed new tires so I bought new tires and went to get an alignment but found out that it was way out. After a few days of trying to understand the problem I bought new used lower control arm, knuckle and upright spindle. I think I got them all changed okay (I could have used this site a few days ago, thats for sure) but ran across another issue.

    The two upper control arms are at different heights. Is this a problem? Can they be adjusted?

    Thanks gang for any insight into the issue.

    Here are the pictures.
