Thrust angle

Could a -0.14 thrust angle (rear axle) make a truetrac (on both axles) pull left?

just checking

thrust angle meaning one wheel is .14 behind the other side? .14 degree? no way. or.14 inch? Highly doubt it. an eigth of an inch over 6 feet? seems so small that backlash/tire scrub would negate any difference that small


truetrac.. how do you like 'em?? ive been thinking of one or two.

degrees...sorry

The rear axle is pointing slightly towards the passenger side... slightly.

As far as the TT's go. So far so good, except they do make your little alignment problems come to light which is good. I have not had the truck on the road much since I put them in.

My truck is set up for travel so, to each his own. They are simple (muy importante), stronger and provide better traction than stock.
I did have them in the snow for a bit, they did not handle funny at all. Best choice for me.
