      Quick question - I am running a 3" spindle lift on my 2wd explorer, stock upper and lower arms, 33x12.5" tires.

      Can I get the truck aligned right with this setup without getting alignment plates for it? (caster/camber)

      thanks

      If you are running 3" spindles, then you should be at stock geometry. And do not need any additional aftermarket to compensate for the lift. You should be able to align off stock configuration. Only thing that may throw u a curve is if you did a TT to go with it. But still should be able to align with stock figures.
