Soa Tire Alignment

Can A Tire Store Still Align The Front End Of A Yj With A Soa? Do They Do It With The Same Specs As Sua?

A alignment can be made as usual.

All an alignment shop can do is adjust the 'toe' and straighten the steering wheel. If you have not removed the drag-link the the toe should be fine. If you've clocked the pinion or added lift shackles, that will change the caster adjustment and the only way to correct would be to shim the housing. Caster is set by the inner knuckles (C's).

And yes, they would try to set it back to stock (sua) specs.

the alignment shop should be able to adjust it just like normal.

from what I can tell you are looking at going SOA in the near future or you are at least weighing your options.

you will at the least need to do cross over steering with a flat top knuckle, unless you use the stock springs, I have read.

I used 2" lift springs on mine and swapped in a front 44 while I was at it and went full high steer on L/R flat top knuckles.
