    Yesterday I installed the Toytec/Eibach 3" lift kit along with Zone UCA's. Today I took it in to Les Schwab for an alignment, talked to them about my modifications and I was told they do lifted trucks all the time. The alignment is a mess, please see the attached picture. Was told that they could not adjust the right side cam enough to match the left and this was due to how the LCA was put together at the factory. Was told that if I gat a smaller cam from Toyota this could be corrected. Is there any truth to this? Where can I go in the Seattle area to get this fixed? I only bought UCA's to prevent alignment issues but I ended up with a big one anyways. IMG_2640.jpg

    Damn. Sorry I can't help, but I'm sure someone on the forum has some advice.

    Wow I think you need another shop. Les schwab tried to align my truck too and they failed miserably. I do not trust them at all. The only reason you right side would be so far off is either something is bent or they don’t know what they are doing. I’d bet on the latter unless you don’t know the history of your truck.

    Take it to someone that knows lifted Toyota’s. Good luck. Let us know what happens.

    I feel your pain, my truck isn't even lifted and the place I went can't seem to do a normal F'ing alignment.

    I can't help with the Seattle part as I'm in the upper Midwest. After I leveled mine (call it 2"), out of the 3 or 4 shops I called, the guy that I talked to who had absolute confidence in his ability to align it exactly where it should be was a tech at the local Toyota dealer. He fully understood what I had done to the truck, was willing to look at the specs I provided, did an excellent job that they'll stand behind and it cost me $78.00. 3500 miles later the truck still tracks straight and true and no tire wear issues. If you have a good local dealer they may just be worth a shot.

    I know that the two Toyota dealers that I've gone to here in Denver do a lot of lift installs, thus have the alignment thing down pretty pat. You just might want check out your local dealer.
