My truck is fucking weird, if im parked at home on a level surface my front tires look normal. now when i pull into a parking spot with an incline or decline, the passenger front tire is normal and the drivers side is all buckled in. Like the top of the tire is out and the lower part is inward. I forget if thats the tow or camber. Anyways, this doesnt seem normal to me, maybe im jsut a fucking idiot though.

HA...who knows. Mine is off I think too. When I was messing with it the other day I noticed that my left tire looked turned out a little bit. Its tracks great and drives straight, but looks off. I think I am going to get it done after I change out my TRE boots.

You been huffing glue lately? It's known to alter alignment of the brain.

Wet a portion of your driveway. Drive over it with your tires. Make sure the whole tire is wet. Crude way to start but is never wrong :)

I was just @ 4 wheel parts and my buddy who is a mechanic in the back stated that they were having problems with the alignments on the nnbs due to sagging front springs.. haha he showed me all the sets of used rubber:crazy: so he basically told me to keep an eye on my alignment. which u should anyway:imo

Double check the bolts at the UCA's. If the truck has been aligned recently. They may of came loose, enough to where the tire might move.

Are they Plastic Knockout's still in place?

Can't help without seeing pictures.

You are describing positive camber.

Are your tires showing any uneven wear?

Do you find it hard to keep on a straight path on a bumpy road?

no issues while driving, no sign of wear since my tires dont even had 1500 miles yet. So I dont know. Im gonna take it Saturday since I have no clue when we are getting the UCA's

HAHA, calm down you impatient fucks! Be grateful that you got them made, and for a good price. ANYWAY, Jameson, do you have a place called NTB in your area? Stands for National Tire & Battery. They offer a 1 year warranty on their alignments. I talked to the guy and he said he would stick by it even with a lifted truck. Might be worth checking out.

My truck does a very similar thing and some other GMFS members have commented about it....when my truck (hell my wife's Tahoe does the same thing too) is parking in my driveway, which is not insanely steep but it definitely has some pitch to it, my camber looks off as well (granted right now my truck is COMPLETELY out of alignment) but the Tahoe looks that way as well and I just had it aligned 2 weeks ago :shrug: My only guess would be the incline is putting more weight on the back end of the vehicle when parked on an incline :shrug:
