Driving with tires that are out of alignment is a big deal. Not only does it contribute to uneven wear on your tires, shortening your tire life and use, but it can also pose significant safety issues.

Driving with tires that are out of alignment is a big deal. Not only does it contribute to uneven wear on your tires, shortening your tire life and use, but it can also pose significant safety issues. You can tell that the tires are out of alignment if the vehicle pulls to one side or the other when in operation. Tires that are out of alignment will also make your ZJ harder to handle, which can make driving off road potentially dangerous. Installing any type of mod that lifts your ZJ past 3” will mean that you’ll need to take the time to make sure the tires are aligned afterward. With a few simple tools you can align the tires yourself. If not, it’s not an expensive operation to take it in to your local service center. The chart below will tell you the range of measurements for the camber, cross caster, caster and the thrust angle for the rear tires.
