I don't recall saying I was going to perform my own alignment. Only that I had done a preliminary check. I would like to learn about the donor truck chassis that I am riding around on. I had no prior history of the vehicle so it seems like a prudent thing to do. Can I check all these angles to within .1* in my garage? No. But can I discover that my camber and/or toe is way off? Yes.

What I am trying to ask is: does anyone know if the factory GM truck specs do indeed call for positive camber? And, does it look like my truck is running negative on purpose or is it simply a sign of wear or improper adjustment? And, what numbers do the board members think is a BETTER set of numbers if the factory ones aren't optimum?
