Alignment after lift install

After i install my 6 inch lift, I know I have to go nd get everything realigned. Is it safe to drive my truck to the shop? And also do I have to take it to a specialty shop or can I just take it the dealer?

Do an alignment with string etc. in your driveway first then drive it to the shop. That way you at least know it is going to go down the road somewhat straight

Any competent alignment shop can do our trucks. It's a straight axle, no camber to worry about, minimal caster, and drag link length.

My local shop charged me $45 if I broke everything loose first.... good deal for me since I had replaced everything.

Please check out my 7.3 Enthusiast Facebook group! All are welcome! LINKY
