Does anyone know how to get these tires in the front to sit flat?? I put the Bilstein 5100's on my truck to level it out (highest setting) and it started wearing out the outter side walls of the tires even after alignment. I just got new Nitto Trail Grapplers had it aligned to spec and even asked to get it on the more negative side of the camber to prevent this but had a hard time getting it to where i wanted it.

It still looks like my front outter side walls are wearing quicker then the back... 1,000-2,000 miles on tires so far. I know that since my truck is 04 that i dont need the cam bolts... but should i get them anyway? Would that help make it easier to get the alignment where i want / need it?

Just curious on what i should do since it didnt seem to have this problem before the Bilsteins..:confused:

You stated that you got an alignment after getting the Nittos. Did they give you a spec print out?

Can you post a picture of the bolts you have on the lower control arms? They will be the bolts that connect the LCA to the frame.

I'm suspecting that either:

1) You don't have cam bolts (or someone swapped them out)
2) The alignment shop pulled a fast one on you.

Bestatchess is right in that cam bolts came standard on '04 T.

Alright pictures attached are copy of the alignment sheet when it was done and pics of the driver side and passenger side cam bolts (yes there is a tire under the truck so try not to get thrown off lol)

Here are the back side cam bolts.. they look to be pretty much maxed out on adjustment

I'm not exactly an expert on alignments but if your cam bolt is maxed out as your picture shows then that would mean that the bottom of your tire is closer into the center of the vehicle than the top of the tire. The tire is leaning out. That would seem to agree with the outside of the tire wearing away.

Yep...those are cam bolts. The spec sheet doesn't show that they actually increased negative camber. They fixed the toe, (very important) but the camber seems to be set within specs.

If you are still wearing, you may need to get the cam bolts from PRG. I think the PRG cam bolts offer 2* more adjustment than OEM cam bolts. Not 100% sure on that but I'm running the PRG bolts and I've got 3" up front.
