Just installed a levling kit (3" front/ 1" rear) on my 05 CCSB FX4 and now the truck wants to wander a bit. Is there anything i can do to fix this and if so what is it.

I've heard that the coil trucks need to have as much attention paid to the trailing arms as the coils when doing a lift. Simply pushing the axle down actually rotates the axle forward causing negative caster. Negative caster is no bueno. If it was a simple coil spacer, you may need some sort of adjustment piece to correct you caster. Sorry, I'm a leaf spring guy, not too hot on the coil part names.

You have lost most of your Castor if the kit didn't have castor shims or 4 link arms and if you didn't add a adj track bar your axle is offset...

We have the castor shims etc if we can help please Pm.
