Does anyone have the alignment specs for a lifted Ridgeline? Bought used Ridge and had to put struts and a front passenger side axle on it, it is lifted so if it needs a different spec for the alignment I would be appreciate it if anyone could share!

My Ridgeline had a Truxxx kit installed and front camber was set at neg. 1/4 or.25 and 0 toe. The rear was set at neg. 1/4 or .25 and 1/16" toe in.

Thanks guys. New tires should be here today. so hopefully get it in and get them mounted and get the truck aligned next week. The guy I bought the truck from ran different sized tires on the front and rear axle(245/70 on front and 265/70 on rear on aftermarket rims, been on stock wheels since I found out). Wish I would have caught that before we bought it.

Bummer, not good.
Think of anything that you would look for to be a problem area after this? I believe very well might have been part of the reason the right front cv joint went out. Luckily he had just put these wheels and tires on and the tires are still prickly on the outside, hopefully we caught it soon enough. I cant believe any tire shop would install 2 different sized tires on any 4wd. I figure early spring I'll change the trans fluid along with vtm-4 and front diff. So far I've fixed a bunch of little odds and ends (drivers headlight was not seated in housing, xm radio was unplugged?, cabin filter was upside down, washer fluid reservoir was loose, new power steering pump o-ring, struts and axle) hoping this isn't a continuing trend. It's the Mrs. ride, I talked her into buying something a little cheaper instead of a 16 Pilot in the hopes she would save money and could buy a new pilot in a couple of years with cash. Beginning to think I should have just told her to get the Pilot........... after all it's her money! haha

You have a bit over an inch from front to rear tire diameter,depends on how long that went on, maybe they just put tires on it to sell it. Drive it and dont worry about it for now, you've invested some dollars in it on some good maintenance points so just keep an eye on things. Good vehicle for her just listen to her if anything comes up. Congrates on your new used RL.
Edit: Dont worry about the CV, that wouldnt have anythin to do with the different tire size.
