leveling kit and alingment

Im going to put on a leveling kit on my 07 4x4. When I do what is going to be out on the alingment? Will it be camber, caster or toe? I have an alingment machine at work but im not sure how camber and caster is set on this truck so I can set toe but may need to take it to an alignment shop for camber and caster.

Can't help you on the alignment part. I just take my truck down the street to Merchant's Tire.

I got a question about the torsion bar. How do you adjust them to level the front out?

Many thanks!

Mike

Find your torsion bar and follow it towards the back of the truck about mid way under cab you will see a bolt there start to adjust one side about half way in and then do the other side,then take both up about 3/4's of the way and start measuring the underside of the front fender wheel well and get them even.hope this helps if not I can post pics.

Thanks for the help! I was looking at the bolt, and was wondering if that had anything to do with it. If I run into any problems, I will posting for any help!

Thanks again!

I recommend jacking up the front end to take most of the load off the suspension before you start cranking on the t-bar keys.

I did jack the front end up, and put it on jack stands. Seems the passenger side did not need as many cranks on the bolt as the drivers side did. I am really happy with the way it came out, but just giving a few more miles to readjust it. I got about 2 inchs out of it. Ride does not seem that bad, actually feels better when I hit some bumps! Thanks for all the help with this!!!!

Show us some pics! I loved how my '05 looked with the torsion bars cranked.
