lol these guys have been workin on alignment racks since they were in diapers. They're now 65-70 and they're in diapers again. They're the best of the best. My shops the only shop I would take to get my truck aligned. I just swapped out my drag link to a moog one and adjusted the steering. It made the camber a lot better (due to toe in)...still off a about 2 degrees but a lot better than what it was.

That looks like more than two degrees to me.

I think it can be brought back in. My tires after my lift were about the same but negative camber. You can get those double adjustable bushings that give like 12* or some shit

but didnt you say you got springs? The lift springs would net more of a lift than say the leveling blocks.

----------

we used the leveling blocks in mine and my dads truck with great results. Tires tipped out just a fuzz.

Yea i got complete leveling springs. That shouldnt make a difference though They said 1.5" lift springs....1.5" of lift no matter HOW its lifted on the suspension be it spacers or full coils I would think. Correct me if I'm wrong. Granted I DID net 2.5" of lift.

Did you get the wrong springs?
You are not wrong. 2.5" from a 1.5" spring is wrong.

Just a thought - to properly lift independent suspension, wouldn't you need to install a sub-frame or lower the mounting points for all of the components?

Nobody sells a 2.5" lift for the TTB. Its either 1.5, 4, or 6. the 4 or 6 inch kits need drop brackets, the leveling kit does not.

Are your new springs a 1.5" taller than your old ones...?

You have a TTB. How could you not have expected this?


lol, I hope you get it figured out man. May have to make some custom drop pivot and radius arm brackets to even this out a little more.

Well, got an alignment today at my shop. Passenger side was off 4 DEGREES!!! Driver side was off 3 degrees. They did a good job aligning it and I put 2 balljoints on driver side. Pics will be on tomorrow.
