I think it was just a crappy alignment. He should’ve got your toe closer than that. @adsm08 you’d be surprised how many straight axle trucks have that much toe or more, even brand new trucks
When I first looked at it the page didn't load correctly. The only image I saw was the before measurments. The post-alignment toe does look OK. However, it is very easy on the TIB/TTB front end to get the toe correct, but have the wheel be off.

@PanteraGT5S No as in the steering wheel. TIB trucks have one slip collar to adjust total toe and one to adjust the steering wheel

Steering wheel.

No, only the 3/4 ton and up trucks do.



The way that the TIB steering is set up though its easy to knock one side out while adjusting the other.

The way I always did it was to get toe on the side that was farthest out set where I wanted it, then make sure the wheel was still straight, and adjust the other side, while making sure the first side stayed where I wanted it, and knocking it back when it tried to move.
