    I sure could use the help of the members that know of a "good" alignment shop in the S.F. Bay Area to do the proper alignment of a lifted Tundra. I have a newly installed BDS 4.5" lift W/ coilovers and i am getting outer edge tire wear and "unstable" steering wheel within 2K miles. Thanks.

    Auto Innovations in Milpitas was able to get my alignment to spec with a 3" lift.

    I went to the same place. But if I had a 4.5" lift, I would take it to someone with more experience with lifted trucks. D, did you sell your UCAs yet?

    I'm about to get the same kit installed. I was going to take it to Advance truck Inc. In Gilroy. Where did you get the lift installed? Pics?

    juejaimon, I had really great results at Custom Alignment, 2599 Wyandotte St. Unit A, Mountain View. I have Icon billet uppers that are adjustable and I struggled (3 Diif. places, 1 was 4- wheel drive specific shop) finding a local shop that could set the alignment with them.

    There is a form on their website where you can refer him and you both get $25 or $50 off i forget the amount. I may try them if I can find time to spend half a day in Mt. View.
