Thanks for the link. I am going to get anouther opinoin. The camber is visually very off. I know it needs balljoints and fromt end love. I dont want to put out 169.00 per ball that Big O wants when the local shop has them for 39.99. Thanks again

Camber will not be affected by any size lift. Get a second opinion!

if your camber is wrong your original balljoints are grenaded just replace them with stock replacements .

im thinking you have camber and caster mixed up .

offset ball joints are probably cheaper then a cut n' turn which is the only way you will fix caster and still have the pinion point some were close to the t-case .

i wouldn't bother fixing caster on a 4" lift , unless it has death wobble i wouldn't worry about it .
