well right now the tahoe has 3/4 ton keys to de crank it to lower it..the driver side sits about 3/4 of an inch lower, so i want to lower the pass side down more..now it was perfectly level when it was aligned, but now it seems the pass side wheel is angled out more..will decranking make my pass wheel toe in or out? im hoping in, so it will correct the alignment when i drop it down level with the other side..any thoughts?

I think the toe remains the same but the camber become more negative. I'm no expert on alignment tho.

i was just figuring because with my bagged truck when i went up and down the toe changed..and the camber does become more negative..i need to have that fixed with an alignment..i need to replace the tierods and pitman/idler arm then i can get it aligned again..

idk it goes straight down the road, rides good, and i dont notice any tire ware..i should just leave it for now i guess

I would recomend to get a alighnment. Any time the camber changes, it will also affect toe. You havnt had the drop in that long, so you wont see a tire wearing problem yet. Is the steering wheel off center? I just had the struts out of a car the other day at work and when i put it back in, the steering wheel was off center, but the car drove straight. I hooked it up the alighnment rack, and sure enough the alighnment was off. At the price of tires, i would just get it done.
