Yes. Alignment done,two months ago.
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 3 years ago
do you still have the before and after alignment print outs ?are you 100 % sure the caster and camber where adjusted ?or was just the toe set ?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Just toe-in. Adjusted max. Not perfect.
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 3 years ago
with new shocks and i am assuming the tires are good and there is NO play in the front end at all the caster - camber must be aligned nextthose 2 adjustments or alignment specs are very critical for steering stability and tire wearthe odds are having a real front end alignment done which caster and camber is adjusted to spec then the toe last will correct this issue

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
The alignment was done before the new tires. I've checked the joints up on my lift and pried with bar. No up and down play. Inner ball joint seems to have a little play but not worn out. Truck has 220k miles. Bushings?
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 3 years ago
but like you said the caster camber was not checked or aligned back to specit has to have the caster - camber adjusted next and see if it still does this

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
The word from the alignment guy was that he ran out of adjustment. I don't feel he was competent. I come from a racing and mechanic background. This one has me stumped. Truck is not hot-rodded. I'll replace the inner tie rod end and seek a new alignment guy
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 3 years ago
it needs the caster camber checked next if the caster and camber can not be adjusted into spec because the adjustments MAX out before you get to sec the only thing left is the bushings in the control arms
