Default leveling kit question

i heard that by doing a leveling kit it makes it near impossible to get a front end alignment. is this true?

I put a leveling kit in mine and had it aligned. Mines a 1989 but we both have a TTB front end. You should be fine.

The only thing I don't like about it is thats its rubber and it kinda squished down a little.
Here's one thats made of Billet Aluminum, it may be better, but I don't know.

I used the aluminum blocks in my dads 2wd. You should not have any issues with aligning. Just make sure you break loose the pinch bolt and lube the camber shim. If yours in non-adjustable look here: https://napaonline.com/Catalog/Result.aspx

It will have a hex head around it. And the inside where the ball joint comes thru will be offset.
