    Neophyte here!

    Just took my 1999 in for an alignment, I asked for a 4 wheel alignment but he told me I only need a thrust angle alignment. I must admit that I am on a steep learning curve here, I love these trucks but don't know a lot about them. I do all the minor stuff myself (oil changes, rotations etc.) and would do more if I knew how.

    So, why only thrust angle and not 4 wheel?

    How are you going to adjust the alignment on a live rear axle? You can do all standard IFS alignment adjustments on the front end.

    Cruiserman,

    :doh:, didn't know that there aren't any adjustments for a rear axle. But I guess it makes sense. Thanks. :beer:
