Alignment Question

Ok so after installing my JBA Arms i had an alignment done and the shop was beating around the bush because of the lift. I told them to just put it to Factory Specs. They did the alignment and the Left Front Camber was -0.90 Degrees and after was -0.50. The Right Front was +1.30 Degress and after was +0.30. For both Cambers the tech noted "End Of Aldjustment". The Toe they manage to get back to 0 Degrees on both sides. Do these sound close enough or are they off by too much.

Toe would be the most important, so if that is back to 0 degrees your good. As far as the camber, that also sounds fine, and a little bit of positive camber on the passenger side is actually good.

I was reading up elsewhere that the factory alignment numbers might not be 0 for all. Like say the Camber should be +5 degrees etc. Anyone know the KK Alignment Numbers?

+5 degrees sounds like your number for caster not camber. As far as the factory numbers they are not always at 0 like you said, every vehicle will be a little different.

Here is part of a Sticky post from Lost:



Got some useful info today from our Hunter guy about ESP and alignments.

This applies to all ESP equipt vehicles and not just Jeeps.If you have a alignment and toe adjustments are required and you have ESP the steering angle sensor must be adjusted or unusual ESP operation can result,not always but sometimes you can get unwanted operation.Come Jan 1st 2012 every vehicle sold in the US must have ESP as standard equipment,and all Jeeps have it standard as of 2006.There has been some reports of unwanted operation of ESP that has caused some issues and lawyers are going to start having a field day with alot of new lawsuits from this.As of this month every Firestone(nation wide) will have the ability to reset most steering angle sensors,not all but most and the ones that can not be done must be reset at a dealership as they require there specific scanners.Some vehicles will require the battery to be disconnected for the reset and a "battery saver" can not be used to save stuff like radio memory or the reset will not work so if your vehicle has a "anti-theft" radio that requires a code to unlock make sure you have that code ready as we will not be responable for the added cost from a trip to the dealership to unlock the radio as we must reset the steering angle sensor if we are able to do so.We also may deny doing a alignment if we can not reset the steering angle sensor,even if you have already purchased a lifetime alignment package(you should be refunded the cost).
