Two Questions Regarding Drive shaft and Tire Wear

Hello All,

I drive a 99 Ranger XLT with 7 inches of total lift and 33's, a friend told me about this site so I hope you all can enlighten me on a few problems I have. This probably isn't the place to ask but I'm about to replace the front OEM drive shaft for a second time (it is wearing and rattling at the joint that goes into the transfer case) and was wondering if anyone knew whether the aftermarket Superlift drive shaft made specifically for our lifted rangers would fix my problem? The other problem I have is with my front tires wearing in the inside only, I have taken it to the alignment shop and they have tighten the camber as far as it can go; any ideas what I should do? Would adjusting the torsion bars do anything? Thank You All for Your Help!

adjusting the torsion bars could help, try lowering it down some by cranking the bolt out. that will help alignment.

as for the driveshaft, yes it will fix it

Thanks Chris and Zach for your help. I'll look at your thread Chris and I'll try cranking out the torsion bolts to see if that helps Zach. I don't know why the alignment shop I took my truck to wouldn't check that torsion bars since they have seen the truck a couple of times for the same tire wearing problem. The ball joints are fairly new (replaced last year I believe) so those shouldn't be the problem. I'll keep you all posted once I adjust the torsion bars.
