Alignment/Camber Kit question

Ok so i went to a mechanic yesterday to get my truck aligned because my truck was pushing to the left. After about an hour and a half they came back to me and said they fixed my caster but the camber could not be adjusted anymore and i need a camber kit to get a proper alignment. I was wondering if this is the camber kit that they are talking about More Information for MOOG K80065. Is this what i need?

can we have some info on your ride? please create a signature.






Those moog's would work, yeah. What they do is allow for more adjustability of the upper control arm to set camber. Alot of them are + or - 3 degrees of newfound adjustment.



Here's the ones I've used and many others have used: Ingalls #29000 cambolts.

Ingalls Engineering 29000 - Ingalls Engineering Adjustable Camber Kits - Overview - SummitRacing.com


NOTE: Order a quantity of 2 to recieve a total of 4 bolts. They are sold in pairs, NOT individually like the ad says. I know this because my little brother ordered 4 because the description said "sold individually". We recieved 8 total bolts. This goes for the Summit link above...I don't know about other brands or other parts houses.

thanks.

torsion keys are your reason for being way out of camber(tons of negative camber right?). it still may not be fixable using cambolts.

Is there any other option other than cambolts to fix the problem?

Relocating the upper control arm frame mounts outward. But even then, those balljoint angles are still effed up(thanks to the keys) and the bars are gonna go poopy way faster(thanks to the keys) and the CV's are virtually binding on the street(thanks to the keys) and the ride is gonna be fairly harsh because you've got no downtravel at all(thanks to the keys).

I'm using the Ingalls kit too. Works fine. Sometime if i romp it hard enough i have to take it back in to get an alignment. The bolt on that Ingalls kit is always coming loose.

I had to use the camber kit bolts and cut off the uca mounts and move them out about an inch. Now alignment is spot on.
