    I'm using a general alignment shop which came highly recommended and where all the shops that do lifts on 4x4s take the vehicles before handing the keys back to the owners - we talked about tire pressure and my lift and future plans for a locker/4" lift and different tires etc as well way before the headache got worse. SUPER knowledgeable. Like, I'd marry this guy for his brains and mechanical ability if he was single!! ha ha! not kidding!!! :D

    I will definitely be in better shape next time so should remember everything that happens. Kiddo gave me the sinus infection ugh

    I hope we’ve all learned this has nothing to do with the bed. Measure the distance from frame to wheel. Mine is 1” further out on passenger side. If I could move my axle 1/2” to the left, that would center it. But I don’t think the alignment pins on the springs allow any movement in any direction. It’s a fault that Toyota isn’t bothering to correct. That’s shitty engineering.

    I do. I have Toytec shackles providing 1.5" lift. It was the same when I used block spacers for the lift.

    If you messed with the u bolts I'd say there is a specific sequence to tighten those down to prevent this issue from being accentuated

    Leave well enough alone. It’s even the same on other manufacturers.
