I just put 305/70/16s on my truck, I have the TBs cranked and am getting ready to install 2" rear lift blocks. Nobody around here seems to know how to align the leveled GMC besides a dealership (closed today). Do you know where I can find the alignment specs for this setup?

Thanks!

You don't have to go to the dealer you could go to a tire or alignment shop here cost is $50- $100

Yeah, that is my intention. That's why I need the specs. The tireshops around here like Discount, Big O, etc. try to level according to factory specs, not being leveled.

Wow they must be retards. I would not take my truck to some one that does not know how to do there job. The specs are the same as not leaveld. Most shops have lazer alignment racks and the knowlage of how to use it

while we're on the subject... when I got my centerlink, Michael told me to have them align the truck with camber straight up and down, no adjustment for road crown (straight ahead steer), and I think it was 1/8th" toe in max. Will that give me added tire wear?

When I added my leveling kit from Cognito they gave me the alignment specs for a leveled truck. Maybe had to do with the UCA's...

Unfortunately, those people are out there. Sometimes hard to avoid. They let anybody work in those tire shops.

Have you received a straight answer as far as the alignment specs for leveled GMC 2500 HD? Ive had my truck to 2 different shops and none of them have gotten it correct yet. (Still pulls like hell to the right) 'dunno;'dunno;
