Fixing alignment

I have a 2002 2wd ranger with a fabtech spindle life on 31's and the camber is way off in the front. Do I need to buy a camber kit or can I just take it to an alignment shop?

you shouldn't need a camber kit, spindles don't change the suspension geometry

I bought the truck with the lift and everything on it so I dont know why its so off. Also does anyone recomend a certain brand or have an idea of how much a camber kit is Im not really used to this problem.

whoever put on the lift probably didnt bother to check if it was off....you cant align the truck if you camber is off. Camber kit is usually inexpensive...bought mine for roughly 30 bucks. Brand shouldn't really matter as long as it does its job.

That's odd because the Fabtech kit now comes with the alignment kit (eccentric camber bushings). Not too sure if they always have.

it didnt when i got mine last summer... and you will need something in there to align it or at least i will since my camber is way off and is killing my tires (good excuse to get 33's)

I know what you mean...I take any chance I get to get better or bigger. Right now I'm re-doing my Fabtech lift and adding a bodylift as well since I have it in the garage and cash on hand. Plus I'll be going to 36's...but I haven't decided what tire to go with.
