Ok. New saga in my truck life. I put Rough Country Vertex coil overs on. Went to a new alignment shop after. Making this my 5th shop now? Forget. They aligned it. Shop says the adjustments are maxed out. Best he could do. This is left pic of align. Fast fwd. I put Zone UCA on and took RC coil overs off and replaced with Eibach kit (struts and coils) front and rear. I take it to another shop. Only shop who could get me in before vacation trip. His alignment sheet is on the right. He says he worked on it for awhile. Its the best he could do. He ALSO says cam bolts are maxed. Second shop to say this. He blames Zone UCA because he sees no other reason why it wont get a better alignment. I asked him why people online on searches say their "alignment is good" I got the eye roll and asked to see their alignment sheets for which I had none to show. Are people using a camber/caster kit to achieve more caster and if so, which kit?

I included my alignment sheets from after RC coil overs (left side of pic) to after Eibach lift and Zone UCA (right side of pic comparison). I also included pics of the Zone to show their on right (I installed them). I also included cam bolts to show their maxed out. And lastly, I included a pic of a level against the tire. Why? Unknown. lol. I guess to see if the tire was level from alignment.

I dont anything about the lift kits or Zone control arms but are all the parts you installed on the truck correct for that truck? Maybe for a differently equipped truck perhaps? It starts to make sense when 5 alignment shops can't get it dialed in.

Has the truck been in an accident by chance? Now this maybe a weird question but are the control arms on the correct side?

Good question. Tech asked also. Nope. I am original owner. Bought from a dealer with 14 miles.
