The shop owner called and said that the leveling kit affects the rack and pinion steering because it changes the angle and is no longer parallel with the frame. He said this could cause irregular tire wear and alter the handling of the truck. I have not heard anything about this until now. Is this something I should be concerned about and if so is there a way to make the rack and pinion parallel again, maybe with spacers? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
call around i jut had my 7 inch cst lift put on and the alignment shop said i needed a camber kit.
so my alignment cost me 308 bucks with a discount.
i called cst they said out of the thousands of lists they installed 1\3 of them being the 7 inch they said they never needed or heard about needing a camber kit. then the shop that installed it said they would of put it in for free if i would of came back then another tire shop said it should of only been 150 for everything.
but i found all ths out the day after getting the camber kit and losing 300 bucks! so before they do anything like that call around try calling readylift and some local shops
