alignment problems

well i lowerd my truck about a week ago with belltech spindels, 1" Eibach springs and in the back 3" blocks. the thing is i aligned it today and on the caster i have 4deg. on the right and 4.5 on the left and my camber is 0 and my toe is 0 but it still pulls pretty hard to the right,
Could it be my tires? i have 215/40/17 kumho in the front, and 235/45/17 falken Ziex in the back...

what should i do?

thanks scott

I have the same problem. I took it to an alignment place and they told me it was due to the steel belted radial tires (Nitto 555). They told me to try rotating the tires. I haven't done it as of yet. I want to get another alignment along with the rotation of the tires. Hope this helps!:thumbup:

i smell a lil bull sh!t eeking from the alignment guy on this one. as far as i know almost ALL tires are steel belted radials. ill ask my dad who works for goodyear, but i am almost 100% on this one. the alignment tard sounds a lil lazy to me.:bash:

Well Pep Boys alignment system is w/a laser, aren;t they all?
No, some use a combination of strings and lasers between the alignment heads. It just depends on how new the aligner is.

Radial tires can sometimes cause a hard pull to one side or the other. Rotate the tires and it should go away. Also, I don't know off hand what the alignment specs are for our trucks but what you have it set to does not sound right.

yah i think i might try moveing the back wheels to the front and see if it changes any, even though the wheels are diffrent backspacing, the alignment shop is in Hesperia its called (Toys for trucks) the guy that was working there was really cool


thanks
