adjustable cams arnt the issue

Hey I have a 1999 Ford Ranger 4x4 with the 4.0 lifted with the SL on 33s.......I HAVE THE WORST CAMBERD TIRES IN WEST PALM BEACH! I was told before that there was a chance that the people who put my lift in could of left the adjustable cams (i think thats what they're called) out. They're in there... and yet the top of my tires are still bowed in. What could be problem now if it isnt the cams?

any help whould be great becuase my tires are dissapearing on me quick! =[

not yet. my school has a huge 18 bay shop with all the top of the line equipment. im going to bring it in there crank the t bars to make my front sit level with the back then align it. i just dont want to align it and hit the same problem.... because my other buddy had this problem with his ranger and had to put all new control arms and such in his front end.

I'm willing to bet it's alignment. How long have you been driving since you put the Superlift on? Your tires are probably toast now.

Definitely get it aligned A.S.A.P! It should help.

Was this an issue when it was installed? Or happened gradually over time?

Have you check your ball joints and wheel bearings?
