Why change caster from spec?
Because with a lift, the geometry has changed. Therefore, factory spec no longer is applicable.
Besides that, it'll drive like poo.
I have the Toytec Boss 2 1/2" lift with 32.5" tires. Had it aligned to factory specs and in my opinion it drives like poo. Kind of all over the place. 2015 4X4 with 18K miles.
Check tire pressure. It shouldn't be much more than OEM.
Ya really gotta watch them alignment techs!
It's easy to trick the machine to print out a nice looking page to show the owner. Make friends with somebody with an alignment rack, that's your best bet. Most shops usually don't have a problem with you speaking to the tech while they are aligning your truck, that's the time to specify the numbers that you want.
Im running nitto exo grapplers, had them since December or January. Haven't used them offroad and we didn't get any snow. But so far they ride and wear good and have really good reviews.
Running 36-38 psi
Chalk test it. You should probably be at 29-31.
Toytec told me I would need aftermarket upper control arm to get more caster. My alignment now is .2 and .4 camber, 1.3 and 1.5 caster, .07 and .06 toe. first number being l/f and right number being r/f.
Yes, most tacos do. I can vouch for Total Chaos, good stuff. Haven't used any others. Try to get toe and camber to 0.00, a touch of negative camber doesn't hurt, -0.50 max I'd say.
I run mine at 32-33.
A good off-road shop will be able to do an alignment and will usually know how to align it properly it’s usually about $60 for the front.
That's a good idea. Thanks Should do the test with warm tires I am guessing.
Toytec just told me caster should be at mid 3 or between 3 and 4 degrees. They said only way to get there is upper control arms.
Did they sale you some UCA’s?
No but they offered them yesterday for $485. I want to check around for a better price.
Thanks for the recommendation !
Give em a hundred miles or 2, then report... tires need a few heat cycles to rlly show their stuffs.
U will notice the squirm and such go away after just a few drives.
.... i mean your welcome
You think I should run these tires with mud flaps? Don’t wanna mess up the paint
