I have my caster set up at 3.0 deg. left and 3.9 deg. right and the truck still will wander to the right when I let go of the wheel. Can I go .5 deg less on the left to compensate for this or is this ill advised?:crying:

Nissan introduced the full-size Titan pickup truck in 2004 and continues to sell it in 2010. The Titan comes in more than a dozen two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive trims. All two-wheel-drive trims shared the same alignment specs for the 2006 to 2010 model years, and all four-wheel-drive trims shared the same specs for those years. The rear alignment is not adjustable on any 2006 to 2010 Titan.

Caster
1. The preferred caster angle is +3.0 degrees for the two-wheel-drive trims and +2.2 degrees for the four-wheel-drive trims, but it can vary by -0.75 degrees or +0.75 degrees on any trim.
Camber
2. The preferred camber angle is -0.2 degrees for the two-wheel-drive trims and +0.3 degrees for the four-wheel-drive trims, but it can vary by -0.75 degrees or +0.75 degrees on any trim.
Toe-in
3. The preferred toe-in is +0.22 degrees for the two-wheel-drive trims and it is also +0.22 degrees for the four-wheel-drive trims, but it can vary by -0.08 degrees or +0.08 degrees on any trim.
Thrust Angle
4. The preferred thrust angle is 37.5/34.0 degrees for the two-wheel-drive trims and 37.9/34.0 degrees for the four-wheel-drive trims, but it can vary by -1.5 degrees or +1.5 degrees on any trim.

Does it pull to the right quite a bit or is more gradual? If it is more gradual I wouldn't think anything is wrong with your current adjustment. Most roads are crowned for drainage, which means they slope from the center line to the road edge. Common slope is 2%, which gives a 12' wide lane 0.24' of drop from centerline to the edge. That is enough to cause your truck to wander to the right when you let go of the steering wheel.

It's gradual, but if I travel on a road that is sloping to the left, it will track straight. Do u think its worth adjusting or should I leave it. Also, could the fact that I have 35x12.5 tires be a factor?

I had this same issue when I took it to the first alignment shop i chose. no matter what they said they did it still had a significant drift to the right(they ended up blaming it on my lca bushings, which were fine). the second alignment shop I took it to said that the first shop had it so far out it was ridiculous. Even after getting it all in the green, they were still having issues with the drift to the right. In the end the fix was backing off the caster a bit on the left side and it fixed it. You definetly have something a bit out because I have the same tire size and my T drives straight as an arrow now.
