i posted in the wrong place the first time.
I went to tires plus to get an alignment today because my truck was driving strange and i just installed an adjustable track bar. while getting the alignment tires plus said they did not know how to center an axle, they have never seen an adjustable track bar before. all they align is the toe settings on most vehicles. they also did not know how to adjust caster but im replacing my control arms in 3 weeks when DoR ships them out anyway so ill deal with that then. I have sense been reading online and i think i understand all the parameters now. also i have been upset that my toyo open country MT's have been wearing so fast but now that i read up on it i think maybe its due to an improper alignment...
The thrust angle should be 0, what should the toe in be in degrees? how do i adjust the caster on this 99 cummins? will i need adjustable control arms to do this? the factory bolts for the truck are more than the difference in cost of buying adjustable control arms over the bushing kind so if i need the factory bolts to adjust caster i will buy the adjustable arms and use grade 8 bolts.
i wish to know what the proper settings are for the alignment so when i go back i will know what i need.
here is my alignment: it took 2 tries
