Allignment problems??? Help!!!

I recentley had a 2.5 in icon leveling kit installed on a 2011 f-350. The kit included front and rear shocks, coil springs, adjustable trac bar, and a steering stabilizer kit. The allignment is pretty close on the truck but the steering wheel isn't straight. Plan on getting an allignment to fix this problem, but the tire place told me they don't have any specs for such a new truck?? And the dealer service dept won't give me the specs?? Any thoughts??

You don't need a alinement whats needed is to just adjust the drag link..from the pitman arm to the passenger knuckle..key on engine off when you do this..takes 5 mins.

On mine the steering wheel isn't straight either due to a new drag bar being put on. What all do you adjust cause this $h!t is getting old

You will still need an alignment adjustment if the ride height was changed, castor I think. Find a dealer with the latest alignment equipment. My last GMC dealer (gasp!) had some kind of black box system that told the tech when and what to do and they didn't even road test when they finished. They always came out perfect.
