    I lifted my truck last night and my camber is way off. Does anyone have tips on aligning it myself? ill take it to a professional shop later, but i really need to drive my truck on the highway a bit first and dont want to where my tires away!!!

    Well the lift kit said 2 inches but looks like more. Im at work till 5 and i didnt drive it today due to the camber or i would upload a picture. Pretty much, bottoms of tires are towed in, tops and out.

    like this but not as bad:

    I had to get new camber bushings and my left side is still a tad off. If you have the adjustability in your bushings, you can get close with a standard level. The toe is a little harder since you can't measure the rear of the tires, but you want front of the tires to measure really really close to the same as the rear of the tires.

    You can use a couple of magazines under each tire as the slip pad. Make sure your springs have settled back before trying.

    Use a long extension and go through the top of the coil bucket. I think it's a 1 1/8 socket you will need. There is also a 12mm 12 point pinch bolt you need to loosen first.
