    Default Camber Problem

    Put new tires on the truck a month ago. And when i had it aligned they told me my camber was maxed out. The truck is 2004 Chevy 2wd with a RCD lift kit on it. What do i need to do to get this problem fixed. Is there something wrong with lift or better parts that need to be put on to fix the camber problem.

    Did they check your ball joints? I have heard that they wear out prematurally with a lift and larger tires. If they are bad, that would explain it. You might want to have it checked out. I had to do all mine at 60k.

    Yeah had the whole front end checked out for worn parts and nothing. I am wondering if when the lifted it and cranked the torsion bars it puts it out of reach for camber adjustment

    I don't think so. My was aligned all within specs after the torsion bars were cranked, so I don't think that is it. Good luck.

    Yes, if the torsion bars are adjusted to provide too much height the penalty can be negative camber (and a crappy ride). Before you re-align the truck I'd drop it an inch or so and see if that gets the camber back to within a tolerable spec.

    A replacement upper arm that's either adjustable or longer from the pivot to the ball-joint can also get rid of the negative camber without having to lose ride height.

    I think you should be able to put longer A arms in or longer torsions. If you crank those up too much you can run the risk of snapping them (it's a lot of twisted pressure)

    Torsion is great... I remember as a kid cranking them down for the weekend to go for "in the weeds" look. Ah, to think you're cool in something that rides like a skateboard.
