    Has anyone ran into this issue when turning full lock at slow speeds? My front tires lean out and they squeal like they are skidding. Also the truck jumps and bucks like it is in 4wd ev3n though it isn’t. No excessive tread wear patterns like alignment problems. I have a suspicion that is may be the combination of aftermarket wheels with wheel spacers. The truck has a 4.5 inch bds lift with 35x13 20s. The previous owner set that up. Any help would be appreciated. The pic from the back shows the tire lean.

    Your alignment is out of whack, way too much positive camber, whoever aligned it did a piss poor job. Look at SPC upper control arms, they will fix your problem.

    Tundra234. I’m really not sure on the offset. I do know that there is also a wheel spacer behind there. So what ever the spacing, it’s pretty big. I don’t think it’s hitting anything. I felt that. It would rub in reverse on the body mount bracket until I had it chopped off. This is something different from hitting something.

    15 Yota. I will for sure check out the alignment. It just doesn’t have any of the typical alignment issues. Doesn’t pull. Doesn’t have any excessive tire wear. Drives straight as an arrow down the road. Smooth as it can be except full lock turning at slow speeds.

    The offset is usually stamped on the back side of the wheel. As far as spacing, a wheel spacer brings a wheel out, but when you turn it, it puts it closer to the bumper or body mount. I have a Readylift 3/2 kit and a 0 offset with 34's and i am really close to rubbing at full lock. Did you just purchase the truck? I'm just wondering how long it has been like that.

    Also, what size is the wheel spacer?

    Toe is the main concern for tire wear, however camber will eventually as well. I highly doubt whoever did the alignment got your truck in the “green” on the printout, and just because you are in the “green” doesn’t mean it’s aligned correctly. My advice is if you plan on keeping your truck for awhile then get the SPcs and enjoy years and years of trouble free alignment. :thumbsup:

    I did purchase like this. I’ve had it for about 6 months. Has 17k on it. The original owner did all the mods to it. It has a 4.5 bds lift with the fox shocks. Has 325 60 r20s. Nothing rubs anymore since I did the body mount chop. But yes. The truck has done that since I purchased it. Honestly. All other driving I do from city driving to interstate at 85 mph is smooth as butter. It’s just when I go to turn into a parking space or something like that.

    So the SPcs are upper control arms?

    They look to be 2 inches.

    They usually run around $480, believe me it will be the best money you’ll ever spend. Everyone who has them will back me up.

    You bet. I wish I could have kept mine with the bulletproof.
