    Just installed 2/1 CORNFED lift on the wife’s Runner then took it to local Toyota dealer to get 285/70/17 Patagonia mount/ balance and alignment done

    Curious what you guys think about the alignment specs ??
    See sheet below

    It looks like the right front caster is below spec. How does it drive?

    Caster helps keep you headed straight down the road. If it's too low, it might feel like you have to correct the steering a lot. As long as it doesn't feel like it's wandering, it shouldn't hurt anything.

    That’s what I found on google- wife said it was wandering some but I figured she was just not used to the aggressive M/T “feel” and the I bought the tires used so I also figured they would take a bit to work/ run into the runner/ new alignment

    THX- for the reply’s
    Your runner is Bad-Ass - love the Army Green

    Thank you! It's actually MGM, but looks green in that picture for some reason.

    caster will drift to the lower side. .3 is not much but in combination with road crown, you may experience a pull or drift to the right. on well worn roads with out shoulders and dirt roads this can appear as wandering.

    Used tires sometimes have "memory" and can take a bit to "settle" to the vehicle. Even with new tires i like to go to an empty lot and do alternating figure 8s. This scuffs up the tread on new tires for better grip and heats up and flexes the tire, helping them settle in.

    Can you post pics with the Cornfed spacers installed? Did it level out front to back?
