    Hello,

    Finally got my truck the other day (limited crewmax) after a three month wait. During that time one of the items I purchased from @Roman was the TRD-pro suspension. The purchasing dealer installed it, but I don't believe they aligned the front end. After getting delivery I took my truck to a local wheel/tire place where I had Method NV's and KO2's installed. They did an alignment. I know that the TRD-pro suspension does not require aftermarket UCA's. I believe 2"-2.5" the OEM UCA's will work fine. Since the TRD-pro was shipped with OEM UCA's I should be good in that area. My question is regarding the alignment numbers (attached). I think...the alignment system they use you plug in the truck's info and it spits out an alignment parameters. Then you go to those specs. You can see in the pic that my tuck was listed Tundra non-offroad. Would that use different numbers than the TRD-pro? Since I'm using that suspension, just wondering if my alignment is off. Truck rides fine. Maintains current direction . The only thing I can see (and it might be my OCD) is it looks like I could use a little more camber.

    The truck did settle for about 4 days before I took it home. I also drove over 150 miles before I got the wheels/tires/alignment done.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Camber looks high to me. IMO it should be about .1 I can't tell exactly what the caster # is but more is better with caster IMO. I think stock is around 2.5*? Not too sure.

    Thanks for input. Appreciate it. That's what I was thinking. Need a little more negative camber. When I look at the truck from ground level just looks a bit off with a little too much positive camber.

    This is from another site.
    STOCK TRUCKS:
    Camber: +.1 degree camber on both sides.
    Caster: As much as possible without sacrificing +.1 degree camber or causing a cross caster pull.
    Toe: +.12 degrees per side for a total toe of +.24 degrees. (some guys have had to drop toe to +.04 to +.5 per side/+.08 to +.10 total toe)

    LIFTED TRUCKS:
    Same As Above ... BUT if you have wheels that have more negative offset than foctory wheels, increase the camber to +.2 degrees. (or even +.3 degrees if they just can't get there with the amount of adjustment allowed by the eccentrics) Adjustable upper control arms are available for cases where there just isn't enough adjustment left in the eccentrics to get a decent alignment. Although they are expensive, most guys with lifts have a lot of $$$ invested in tires so you need to make a judgement call.
    From the above specs, your toe is actually low.

    Thanks for the info. I do have more negative offset than stock wheels. I was actually going to get a set of JBA's UCAs with my suspension purchase, but thought I'd wait to see how the alignment went. Oh well... at least the UCA's will match nicely with the coil springs :)

    I don't think you need UCAs, just proper alignment. If the eccentrics are maxed then yes. But they shouldn't be if you're running the Pro shocks.
