Couple questions

What would I need to do to fix a negative camber -sp-
My front wheels look like this (if you are looking the the front of the truck)
\ l
That's what my tires look like.

Also I would wondering where in San Diego I could take my truck to get looked at. My goal would be to get a list of what someone would recommended to be fixed. I'm pretty sure everything is pretty much original and it has 119k miles on her. I would like to get her some new parts :)

I live in Jamul CA, East County San Diego. So if anyone knows of any good shops that they trust around my area, please let me know.

Look at getting your balljoints replaced, maybe a camber kit...Tie rod ends, hell if its ALL original replace it all...Belt, water pump, ball joints, tie rod ends...etc

What year is the truck? if you have the I beams, while you may need ball joints you may want to invest in a set of eccentric bushings as well. when I lowered my truck I had to get them to put the truck back in alignment. the are easy to put in and dial and a definite upgrade from stock.

Hope that helps.

Theres no need to replace the water pump until it shows that it needs to. I'm just trying to keep the OP from spending unnecessary money.

Thanks for the help guys. But does anyone know of any good shop in San Diego California that they trust? I want to get truck looked at so I know what could use some attention. I know I need to fix my camber problem and get new plugs with wires. Just would like to know if there is anything else I need to keep an eye on.
