    6 inch Rough Country Lift with 35’s
    I recently got a 6 inch lift on my 2017 Toyota tundra. After about three months the insides of both the front tires totally bald. My steering wheel pulls to the right while I’m driving if I let go. I went back to the shop that I got the lift on at to get my alignment retested. Everything was on and now I am getting blamed for something that I did and that’s why they are buil I went back to the shop that I got the lift on at to get my alignment retested. Everything was on and now I am getting blamed for something that “I did” and that’s why they are balding. Does anyone know what could’ve caused it to happen because the people at the shop say that they have never seen anything like it?

    Sounds like it’s either not in spec from the get go or they didn’t tighten the cam eccentric bolts enough. If they come loose it will go all out of whack. I think it’s 207 foot pounds

    If the tires have worn down in that short of time and it pulls to the right, the alignment is clearly off. Post up an alignment printout so we can see what you’re working with. After it’s freshly aligned, properly torqued, and drives good I always mark the alignment cams in case they do move, I can get set them where they belong. Most lift kit companies state somewhere in their manual to completely re-torque the lift kit within 500-1000 miles, did you do that?

    Bent spindles? Both?

    Did you buy the lift from the same shop?
