    Hey there!

    I have been reading your alignment thread and I'm having some issues and wanted your opinion. I have a 2014 Limited Crew 4x4. I just put +35 XD 779 rims on with Nitto Ridge Grappler 285/65/18s. Had an alignment done twice and noticied wear on outside and steering wheel was off. Took it to another place and told them I have the 5100s on the highest setting. They did the alignment and said the toeing was off. I didn't get the printoff so I don't have the numbers. After they did it the steering wheel was all but pefect but I'm still noticing wear on the outside edge of the front tires.

    I saw you had some recommended settings but wasn't sure if they applied to my year. Could you please send me your recommendations that I can take to the alignment place and have them compare what I have to what you recommend.

    I would really appreciate your help.

    Thanks Phil, i'll see if I can get the pics you asked for. Is it worth going back to Town Fair Tire who did the original alignment or should I find another shop to fool with it. I don't know what is standard practice as far as messing with numbers if they are already "within spec".

    good morning!

    I've been reading your alignment thread and trying to learn a little more before asking any questions. I'm usually pretty good with mechanical stuff but this alignment stuff has my head spinning. Last week i installed Bilstein 5100's on highest setting with a 1.5" block in rear. took truck to get alignment and it all came back within spec except for right caster is 1.4. It was 1.4 before and after alignment. I put new tires on after alignment that are 1" taller overall, same width. I have 200 miles on new setup. truck drives like new, does not pull, wheel is centered, no vibrations at all. If you looked at my specs, could you give me a second opinion? truck is a 2015 CM 4x4. I just spent $1000 on tires, I want them to last as long as their supposed to!

    I appreciate any advice.

    Okay I received my headers and they are MILES better in quality than the pacesetters I had on my ol pickup, and the flanges are flat as they could be I'll look into that thanks! I'll probably have them installed the weekend after.

    Quick question, should I purchase specific manifold gaskets to be put on when I install my headers?
