Fixing camber

Hey guys, well I just noticed on my truck that i am getting horrible wear on the inside(side closest the the engine) of my tires on the front most likely do to the fact of my spindles. I never got an alignment after i installed them beacuse the truck was driving straight and wasnt having any wear that i noticed but it was probably there and i didnt see it. Well seeing how bad my tires are im looking to align the truck but iv seem to have some negative camber. I was planning on throwing shackles on and cranking my t-bars about 1.5" but i just want to make sure with that extra 1.5" of cranking they will be able to align my truck and fix the camber or will i have to buy a camber kit to fix it? The truck drives straight and has a tad vibration at high speeds but thats probably just from having aggressive tires.
this picture shows it to be not to bad but its a little worse than what the picture shows i think.

shackles look/are lame and push your rear wheels forward. get an AAL

shackles were the culprit in this incident on my rear tires

many people run shackles no problem. and as for the tbars par, do all the work, then take it in. so itll be all nice and done. dont wanna get it aligned then crank the tbars and have it be off again.

ya and many people don't take their truck off road. that happened at the dunes because the axle was pushed forward due to the shackles on the highest setting


x2 on the cranking before alignment but get those camber bolts first, it gives them more adjustment to get your truck dialed in nicely

Can someone provide a link to the camber cams or bolts that are needed for torsion 4WD trucks?

I know to crank the t-bars before the alignment, but do i need to get new camber bolts or should they be able to fix it in the alignment? It could possibly be just the tow in going out.

Get the camber kit and install it before you go. You'll get a better alignment with it
