    Hey guys,

    Looking from the front of the truck, the passenger side front wheel looks like there is a a little tilt outwards while the driver side looks perfect. I am wondering if this is something to worry about? I just got the truck aligned after the suspension, wheels, and tires went on. The mechanic said he needed to turn my alignment all the way out and didn't suggest I lift it anymore however it is in spec except for the non-adjustable spec (idk what that is). What does that mean? I don't have the paper on me but will get it soon. I also am on Stock UCA's but other guys on the forums said they had no issues on the 5100's with wheels and tires.

    The truck does pull a little to the right but it did that from the day I got it. Anyone else have that issue? It is very subtle but for a perfectionist, it's noticeable.

    Just wanted to get your thoughts, maybe learn more about alignment haha.

    Post the alignment printout to see what you're working with. If there's too much positive camber on the passenger front, it could wear the tire fast and could also be contributing to the pull or drift you're experiencing. What angle did they say was not adjustable?

    Will do when I get the chance. The mechanic said that there is a spec that is just based around the other alignment specs which is non-adjustable, it is just a number. I am honestly not sure but will let you know when I go and see him again.

    Well that’s probably your issue. If I remember correctly (and please someone correct me if I’m wrong), anything 2.5” and over...start needing to looking at UCA.

    So the guy's alignment machine went down so I can't even get the paper which sucks. He explained to me that one side had to be turned all the way out which is maxed. He said he knows that one of my wheels was a little tilted but it was still in spec. I should just get new UCA's, yeah?

    I probably would start budgeting for a set of UCA's as well. I would insist on a printout next time as well.

    SPC, Total Chaos are the two I recommend but there are quite a few choices out there. Icon, MCM Fab, Camburg just to name a few others. Just depends on what you want to do with the truck and your budget.

    I like my icons but im biased. but apparently the tubular ones aren't up to par. ive read some ppl having alignment issues with them. I have the billet ones with the heims… all the adjustment I could need. that being said ive never heard anything bad about camburg period. and I read a lot about total chaos. no issues there either. those seem to be the more sought after options so im gonna say youd be safe with any of them. (minus the tubular icons)

    A set of Upper Control Arms will get your alignment where it needs to be. Unfortunately the factory control arms aren't designed for lifted applications.

    [​IMG]

    When you lift a vehicle with factory upper control arms the wheel will move towards the rear of the vehicle (negative caster). With negative caster you will often have wandering or darting of the vehicle. The TOTAL CHAOS UCA's have positive caster built-in for lifted applications. This allows vehicles with 2.5-3" lifts to get back into factory alignment specs.

    Looking for maximum adjustment? Our Heim Joint Upgrade is a great option! Heim upper control arms are fully adjustable to allow maximum tuning of caster and camber.

    We'd love to set you up with TOTAL CHAOS Upper Control Arms. Feel free to contact us directly or email info@chaosfab.com if you have any questions
