I updated today some P/P How to and added one.

Update to ABS File
Update to RDM File

Add - ALIGNMENT SPECS.

Added Specs for proper alignment AFTER you put STEEL Radiator Support in.

IF you have Plastic Radiator Support, your CAMBER IS "IN" AND YOUR TOE IS "IN".

Thus DRAGGING your tires on the inside.

Look at you front tires, wearing to inside?? Put STEEL Radiator Support and align front end.

I guess I didn't know that the alignment would change from putting in the steel radiator support. Hard to believe that Chevy relied on that flimsy thing to hold anything in place that impacted the wheels. It barely held up the radiator.

Do I just give the spec sheet to the alignment guy and tell him I changed something?

No, you don't have to tell him you changed anything. Just tell him that these are the specs you want the truck aligned to, when you hand him the paper with the specs on it.
He is gonna look at you and say are you sure ? It’s not factory setting but tell him it’s much better setting for tire wear

He may even refuse to use those specs. If he does, go somewhere else.
