2009 4x4 alignment issues
 
Are these new dodges not very good at holding alignments? I had a leveling kit put on and have had 2 alignments since and it still won't drive right and I know the camber is out! I don't drive hard either

Was the last 2 alignment done properly?
Mines on the same alignment and it's going on 7 months and zero issues.

I put a level kit on my 2011 ram 1500 bighorn 4x4 and have had two alignments.
both were bad. the last one i had them rotate the tires and in 2000 miles the outside of my tires are wearing very noticeably. i can see the camber is off. the truck pulls hard right. i could have gotten my alignment closer in my garage without a laser alignment machine . It is not the machine.... or the truck.. It is the fact that it is hard to get anything done right anymore. what happened to taking pride in your work? From an oil change to an alignment to someone parking one of my cars, all the same results. I had my tires changed and they broke my tpms sensors, so i bought new ones. I went to the tire place and they installed and broke the 2 new ones. people are so disappointing lately. How grateful are you when you find someone who does their job well, that you are paying them to do...

That's what I'm thinking. Cause there is no way it's right!

Ya it's so disappointing I wish i had the tools to do everything myself because you can't trust anyone anymore! The only thing I can do myself is brakes and oil changes.

I had that problem once so far but I was driving pretty hard. They said my control was loose. Make sure all the eccentric are tightened. Good luck.

Mine was done after my tie rods were replaced due to recall some 2 years ago or so and it's been good. Lots of country roads.

yes, I guarantee your problem is improper alignment, your camber is out because they only adjusted your tow. I took my truck to get aligned once and the guy said that he couldn't adjust the camber, I left.:doh:

that's what im hoping cause I know he said he adjusted the toe so im guessing he didn't care to mess with the chamber after that

I had a shop perform an alignment after I did the 2.5" HBS level. After 3,000 kms I'm seeing uneven wear on my two front tires on the outside. I'm going to realign right after I throw my new wheels & tires on.

I know I only have a 2007 but after my level and 35"s my truck won't hold an alignment to save it's life. gettin it looked at on a brand new machine tomorrow morning.

I too think it's the operators at the place I took it
