I’ve read through the stickies and still am not too sure about the alignment for my truck with stock tires. I have a 2017 SV CC SB. It has the 2.5 inch rough country spacers in the front. I took it to get aligned today and they said it went into alignment without the new cam bolts (have them sitting here. Bought from rough country). I forgot to grab the spec sheet but everything was in the green. The front camber was 1.1 degrees. I feel like that’s way too much. I’m thinking they just didn’t want to put the new bolts in. So if I put the bolts in myself, how should they point? I know The one sticky is for truck running bigger tires.

Thanks in advance!!

Agreed. 1.1 degrees positive is WAY TOO much for camber IMO. But the spec from nissan is something like -2 to +2. Very wide just some they do not need to be adjusted. Another thing is that after you install the cam bolts many shops will not adjusted them for you. They will say " based on our computer..." it says there is no adjustment for camber or caster, only toe. You can point out that you have cam bolts and can make the adjustment. Half the shops will say they will only do what the factory specs.

BEst would be to install the cam bolts. Set the cam per Brutal's guide for max camber and caster, set the toe the best you can, and take it into the alignment shop to dial in the toe. You can ask them to mess with the caster so that the right and left sides are the same.

That’s what I was thinking. I’m going to the shop again Friday and I will ask if I install the bolts if they’ll readjust the toe for me

I usually just get the lifetime alignments package from Firestone. You break even after two alignments.
