    Okay after getting the truck back. If u hold the wheel it goes straight, But when u let go it drops right. Mechanic said because of the angles he cant turn the camber or some shit anymore. Do you guys have any issue like that?

    I am going to bring it to the Ram Dealer and have them check it. But I hate to pay for an alignment twice

    I know it sucks paying twice but that may be what it takes, because this mechanic really doesn’t seem to know what he’s doing. There is plenty of adjustment in the lower camber bolts, you can see in your pics they are both still dead center so they can still go in or out (at least the front bolts, can’t see the rear but assume the same). Is this the same mechanic who was giving you grief about the CV angles in another thread?

    Truck looks great btw! Once you get the alignment sorted out you should enjoy it! Love the bumper.

    If you have an off-road shop near you or a shop that does lifts (other than that one) take it to them. They’re used to dealing with lifts and can give you a proper alignment. The other place that gives my truck a perfect alignment is a Goodyear dealer right near me and I’ve got a 4” Rough Country lift on my 13 1500 Sport and it goes perfectly straight down the road. The guy you took it to that can’t figure out his head from a hole in the ground should give you your money back and you should never go back there except to let them fill your tires for free.

    The front adjusters don't tell you much without seeing where the rear one is set at . Some times it is a compromise between caster and camber when lifted without all of the needed components. Adjusting the pictured adjusters out will gradually reduce the caster.Thats fine if the rear can go out also. A print out and a picture of the rear adjusters would tell you the whole story. I know on a Tacoma which has the same setup for alignment you can buy upper control arms capable of adding up to 4 degrees of caster with plenty of camber adjustment to make alignment perfect . I doubt with a bracket drop you would need adj uppers unless the kit didn't have either an extended knuckle or an aftermarket Upper Control arm to give you all of the alignment ya need . Sometimes one or more of the adjusters are froze up and if they don't take the time to free it up your alignment is going to be limited by the frozen adjuster. I doubt that yours are froze up being its a new lift kit

    I would take it to another shop to get it aligned its obvious from the from cam bolts in the pictures hes not very detail oriented as while the bolts are straight up and down the cam plates are 180 out which would drive me crazy and shows that he just tried to set it up neutral in the front bolts curious what the back bolts look like. And as everyone else has said would be good to see a print out of what the specs are rightnow im sure they are off where they should be.
