[QUOTE=bddisi;6376248]Glad you are ok. If you were a cat, you would be down to 8.:D[/QUOTE]
they can align it...there is no difference in aligning a lifted vehicle vs. a stock vehilce. you can set the toe in roughly with a tape measure..but you will need to have the castor set by a shop probably. sounds like your shop is just lazy. get an alignment..probably take care of your death wobble. check all your tre's and steering box bolts. looks good man...im wishing i would have bought some soft 8's with 33's my 265's arent big enough after 3k miles.
you need to adjust the toe in to fix the steering wheel.....i take mine to Porterfield Tire in Athens, took them 15 min to straighten my wheel and set the castor. Any alignment shop should be capable of aligning it and adjusting the castor. if I were you I'd call them and rough them up a little bit..they are just not wanting to mess with it because you lifted it.
oh yeah and one other thing my transfer case was leaking right where it met the transmission so i took out my front driveshaft (i also have cv joints), is there anything bad that will happen running w.o. a front driveshaft with a 249?
i just didnt want my driveshaft to blow up on me while i am driving and mess something else up or be stranded idk im getting the leak looked at tommorow with the alignment i hope its just a seal or something small. but im enjoying this 2wd thing with the whole gas mileage and burning out
o well maybe ill put it back on once i feel like it. i dont mean to be a little nancy but putting on this lift really did a number on my hands im glad i learned how to do all this stuff tho and i gained 2 mpg according to my overhead but it may be off
I've always understood that running the TC w/o the front driveshaft will burn the VC up b/c the VC will see that the front shaft isn't turning at the same speed as the rear so it will just stay locked in trying to compensate for the speed diffs. between the shafts. correct me if im wrong someone. Porterfield gets 69.00 for toe in/castor alignment.
