Alignment After MK lift

Well, I intalled my RRO lift this weekend and got the alignment performed today at an NTB .Camber is OFF , they put it as close as they could get it. Toe is slightly out too. I wonder if it would be worth taking it to the dealership, since they are the most knowledgable about the Patriot? It pulls significantly to the right because the right camber is so off spec in the front according to NTB.


I'd rather be fishin' with Jimmy Buffet!!

Find a better alignment shop.You just need to install some cam bolts in place of the upper bolts in all 4 struts and you will be able to get the camber in spec,the dealer or Napa will have them but they are a bit spendy.Toe is a no brainer and no special tools needed or parts.

Thanks for the reply, I have the cam bolts that came with the kit for the front. After I looked at what the shop did, I notice that they were completely out of spec from the install istruction. I did a "home" adjustment that helped a little with the pull to the right. The adjustable radius arms that came with the kit are for the rear camber according to RRO( talked to them today). I will do a little tweeking on them myself. I guess, now i just have to go argue with NTB to get my money back for their guy not knowing anything about alignments. Hell, the instructions for the cam bolts were sitting right there where I told them in the console.
