On the weekend i put keys in my pick up. I put 05 17'' aluminum chev rims on it. The tires are on the worst angle. Need some input on what it could be. I think it's a wheel bearing, but im not intirely sure. I don't have pic's. I know also know that it needs an alignment after you put keys in. Also the keys are cranked right out. Oh yea, tomorrow im getting my 4'' sky jacker 7000 shocks. Would that make a difference ?

You don't since you don't know what it is. You have a mechanic do it with an alignment machine.

All you're seeing is the front tires pointed out right?

Alignment most likely. But it could be wheel bearings, balljoints. Or outside shot of idler and pitman arm. The last two are unlikely but if they are wore smooth out maybe

I think he would have noticed that before the keys if that was the issue. When you crank a lot, your tires look like when you jack up the truck until you get it aligned and the pull the UCA to you. That's what I think it's wrong here, he has major positive camber.

i agree ray but he seems hell bent that its not an alignment issue so i threw the parts at him that "could" be wrong.
