Im located in San Diego and wanted to know of any shops that would align my 93 LT ??
i know any shop could possibly do it but if there are shops you would rec. that i go to please let me know. Ive asked ORW but they dont like doing LT alignments. I would try it at work but my rack may be just to narrow to fit the truck on.


-thanks

go buy some turn plates, tow plates, a camber gauge and 2 identical tape measures from Harbor Freight


Then you can do your truck, and make some money doing others

my local express tire in pacific beach said they would do LT kits if they mainained the cams for adjustment.

so as to not start a new thread, which i may do anyways, Has anyone had problems getting their CAMBURG kit with the alignment on the lower heims done???

I just paid for a lifetime alignment and am worried they wont be able to or wan to do it with this kit.

Thanks
Mike

They aren't really heims, as in they don't thread to adjust alignmnet whatsoever. With the kits your alignment might be weird for a little while, but it can be aligned like stock

okay, i was confused about that part, actually dead wrong in how i thought the arms were:D

i though the stock alignmnet cams were not used with this kit but now it seems like it would have to...

You align off the lower arm using the stock eccentric cams which are built into your lower a-arm pivots, the camburg uniball pivots align the same way urethane bushings do, camber and caster are adjusted using these cams and toe is adjusted at your tie-rods, you absolutely need an alignment

60 bucks thats all?? stop crying.. I paid 200 for lifetime..
no i paid 175 for a lifetime, but if i change out my UCA and LCA (aka LT) i get charged 60 bucks for the first initial alignment, then the rest are free.

ah makes sense now.. Still not bad if they do a good job.. That is the hard part, is doing a good job at it.

if it keeps the cams then I will not have to pay more and they willl do it no problema. plus if something is wrong i know the manager pretty well and he'll make things right.

Thanks
Mike
