How often for a front end alignment? How often for a front end alignment?

Hey all,

I was just at the dealer for another free oil change on my 2013 Silverado 1500. They were trying to say that the truck needs an alignment every 15,000 to 20,000 miles. Anyone know if this holds any merit? I was always under the impression that alignments were only needed if the steering wheel pulls, suspension components were changed, or if new tires are installed...

They also claimed at 15,000 miles every truck ...

Need a 3.5-4" lift kit under 1k.

The RC website has a 4" kit but it's 1k. Amazon usually has older kits for less, but I'm having a hard time finding one that fits.

I'm looking for 3.5-4.5. I figured these lifts would be cheaper than the 6".

2.5 RC level kit install - 2014 GMC Sierra

I've had the kit since I bought the truck in November, but wanted to get some warranty issues worked through before I installed. Got a couple of estimates to install -- $200 (no align) and $325 (w/ align).
