Camber kit question
Hey guys, I need your expertise advice here please.. I noticed my driver side tire wearing on the inside and was tipped inward at the top. Sure enough the driver side upper bj was totally shot. I decided I might as well replace them all (uppers, lowers), as well as tie rod ends. Went in for an alignment and they told me I needed a camber kit as the stock ones werent able to get my camber set right...They also showed me that my driver side tire is still tipped in slightly (though not as bad as before the bj replacement). They quoted me $150 for a camber kit and with labor and alignment would be approx $300!!
They said if I put in the camber bolts myself, I just pay $70 for the alignment, so that's my plan.
Ive been looking on ebay for camber kits and they have just the shims (no bolts) that are kind of egg shaped with one flat side and also fully round ones that come with bolts...
So my question is what do I need to buy? The fully round ones with the bolts or just the roundish shims with the one flat side and reuse my stock bolts? Also, do I need a kit for each side of the vehicle or just the driver side that the tire is tipped inward?
And one other quick question. I had an alignment done a couple years ago at the same shop and they never said I needed a camber kit, and I havent done anything to the truck since then. What happened that I need this now and didnt before?
Many thanks guys for your help! I want to make sure I order the right parts so I quit chewing up my expensive tires! Cheers!
