even if you take it to get alligned they wont be able to do it. any time you mess with our suspensions (up or down) youll need to get eccectrics. our trucks come with non adjustable camber bolts. sure you can drive it, but its going to **** your tires up reallll fast. i drove with -4.5 degrees of camber for like two weeks and my tires are fubard on the inner lip. so much so that when i had them rotated last, the dude at the shop asked me if my truck was bagged lol


when i cut my coils my wheels went like this

dammit i cant find the part #

just go into napa and ask them for the +/- 4.0 degree adjustable camber eccentrics for a ford explorer (theyre the same thing)

and if they tell you they dont have any, BS check again lol

youll need a pickle fork (you can rent them at autozone for 11$)
basically, take your wheel off, loosen the jambnut on the side of the beam, place picklefork between balljoint, pop original camber bolt out.

set the eccentric to N (being 0). the driver side eccentric arrow will face to the back of the cab, and the pass side arrow will face the front of your truck. they should come with instructions (mine did). place it in the hole, hit it with a deadblow hammer a couple times untill it seats. retighten jambnut, replace wheel, take it to the shop to get alligned

as to price, my dad worked for napa for 25 years so he got them at cost (25$ each) but youll likely have to pay closer to 50$ for each one

camber is the bane of our TTB suspensions sadly

you go up it goes \----/

you go down and they go /----\


theyre really not that hard to install. if you can do brakes you can install them. just a bit pricey

well i wouldnt suggest installing those lift coils untill you get the eccentrics unless you want to chew up the inside of your tires

by 0 i mean nuetral, wich will leave your wheels at the same place they were before you installed them. the allignment techs will then adjust them accordingly to put your allignment back to factory specs

i got the higest adjustable ones just incase

well. you install the coils, take it to a shop and have them do an allignment check(usually free) and look at the specs of how far off your camber is and buy the according eccentrics
