Alignment shop, south end of town?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Any good recommendations for a front end alignment shop down here on the south end of town?

I want to get the 80 re-aligned, now that it's lifted. :D

Matt, give me a ring. Might be able to help you some time after work one day this week...

I could give you a hand too Matt. (I will have to fight Perry for the alignment rack though.) :hill:

Front:
OME 850 springs
OME N73 shocks
OME SD24 steering stabilizer

Back:
OME 863 springs
OME N74 shocks

Tires:
BFG A/T 285/75/R16
I need another one for a spare -- anyone have an older one sitting in dusty pile somewhere?

I don't have a spacer installed on the front yet. I'll drive it a bit and see if those back springs settle down a bit.

The tires look pretty good to me. They are exactly the same height as the 33x12.50 Goodyear MT/R tires on my 40. How big are you running on your 80, Tim?

That looks awesome Matt! :thumb: :thumb: :cool: :cheers:

You got my # bro ;) . Just let me know when :beer:

Perry, I'll give you a call once my req for an evening pass is approved...

And I was more commenting on how any lift suddenly makes tires look small.. I think 285's are the perfect tire for that lift and stock gears. Mine are 295's so I have a tiny bit more height and but even poorer performance... we can trade trucks some time and you'll see what I mean. Did you do any castor correction? Lower the front sway bar?

Did you install caster correction bushings? I got my 80 without them and they made a big difference.

Hulk 03-28-2006 02:41 PM

I did the castor correction but did not lower the front sway bar. How critical is this? It looked like I had plenty of room. When the suspension is articulated, does the driveshaft hit the sway bar?

That ARB castor correction is pretty ingenious, if you ask me. What a good idea on ARB's part to offer such a (relatively) easy fix. :blah:
