Alignment

My camber is at -1.2 on the left and -1.5 on the right after my alignment. The tech at the local shop said its maxed out is that true? Also I have a 4" spindle lift and looking to add bilsteins on mid level. Will I be able to get my truck aligned? It's a 2006 rwd.

Re: Alignment

sounds like you need new camber bolts, almost a must on anything over 2" to keep camber correct, can be found from prg,

Re: Alignment

Didn't 2006 still come with Cam Bolts? I'd crawl under there and look at them myself, it's pretty easy to tell.

Unfortunately, they did not, Pops. Ask me how I know.

But to the OP, that's what you'll need to get your alignment right.

Re: Alignment

I got an alignment done yesterday after installing a 1.5" strut spacer on top os Bilstein 5100's this weekend. I know I have the adjustable cam bolts. They got things in spec, but said I am maxed out. If anything ever changes, I will need new cam bolts, but good for now.

Bilstein 5100's; 1" Rear Lift Block & 1.5" Strut Spacer

Re: Alignment

If you have them, you have them... ProComp ones are very slightly more off-center and give a tiny bit more adjustment but that's it, I don't think it's enough to justify changing them, but that's just my opinion.

Re: Alignment

Yes! That's definitely an Eccentric Bolt so you should be good to go. That one looks like it's maxed out bringing the bottom of the tire in to the inside.

Like in towards the truck? If that's the case it may be even more messed up than I thought cause it looks as if the bottom of the tire sticks out further than the top. Here's a pic of the alignment sheet itself Alignment-imageuploadedbyag-free1357776528.507431.jpg

Someone here should be able to tell you if any aftermarket bolts provide more adjustment than OEM.
