Put on my 7-9" FTS lift, and took the truck to a tire shop, they aligned it and I believe if I recall I mentioned that the tires leaned in, and he said there's nothing he can do about that and I would need to order a part to fix this? Not sure if he has no idea what he's doing or what

I've read it could possibly be ball joints so I'll check that tomorrow, putting the new tires and rims on Thursday so maybe I'll take it to another shop

If he did alignment the caster and camber should be perfect and everything should be in spec with no lean. Go to a different shop.

Yea I know pics were bad bright as fuck and rushed haha but it's definitely sticking out at the top a good 1-2 inches, she does need a bath lol but sorta pointless as driving home it's caked back on

Those angles are fine and should be easily aligned within spec. I'd ask for a refund and go to another shop

Chances are the shop you took it too has too small of a rack to properly calibrate a truck with that big of a lift. I ran into that issue on my 2002. Even though it was only a 6" lift, a normal alignment rack could not get the truck in spec. I took it to a different shop that had a rack that they align medium and heavy duty rigs including semis. Got it aligned perfectly.

Thinking about it your probably right, I'll take it to the shop in town that works on semis rims are here tomorrow than finally I'll be able to get my tires on
