Lowering question

i have a 3/5 kit i was wonder if i needed djm control arms? i have spc camber bolts.
also how much will my springs sag?

i messaged the seller and he said i didnt need djms or spc camber bolts, but i can clearly see that i needed camber bolts because i have negative camber, i am getting ready to move and the truck is already in the location where i am moving, 5000 km away and i havnt seen it in a year, so i wanna have all the proper things for it when i get there

I am pretty sure you will need a camber kit. Almost all lowered Rangers struggle with negative camber. I personally think a little looks good. The alignment shop should charge you around 175 or the alignment and camber kit. I had mine adjusted for drive height.

No problem, you will be glad you invested in the camber kit. The money you save from wearing out front tires will be worth every penny and then some.
