That is about how mine look after I lowered mine. U may have to move the mounts to get a perfect alignment.

yeah, I've heard of a couple of guys doing that so that the uppers can be aligned perfectly. I don't really remember from the pictures, but are you running without a bed? If you are then put it back on to stabilize the weight. Otherwsie, consider relocating the upper control arm mounts. Honestly, I'm not usre if the mounts need to be moved out or in, does anyone know for sure?

yeah, i have a bed with a full size spare and toolbox back there. the mounts would have to move out like 3/4" or so since my camber is negative. you wouldnt remember who moved their mounts do you?

I don't remember who changed their mounts, let me search and see if I can find the thread. I think it has been about a year, but I can't remember if it was on here or RPS. I will let you know what I can find.

That would be great to see what someone else has done. Probably will do this over the long weekend coming up since i cant go anywhere fun (the woman is due to have my child so i guess there isn't a much better excuse to have to stay home)

Moved all 4 UCAs out about 3/4" to fix my negative camber. Judging by the last pic i would say it worked lol. right now its adjusted all the way positive so hopefully it can be aligned properly now (after about 3 years of being out of alignment). I have an appointment to get it aligned monday at schwabs; they have a 30 day free realignment policy which will come in handy because i am in on the group coilover buy and will probably need to be realigned after i throw those on..

Got it back from Schwabs and its all within specs now and the cam bolts are close to centered so I have room to adjust either way now.
