hah that is true! So I still have not taken the time to install the lift. I will probably end up paying someone to do the work. It will have to wait tho until I get back from New Zealand.

So I finally got the 4" lift installed. few issues with the install.... 1. the guy didn't leave the stock leaf spring block in so now he has to take it apart and put it back in. 2. my passenger side camber is bad.
I went to go get it aligned and they installed the camber cam and still sits positive camber.
Anyone know why this could be happening? would replacing ball joints help any? (thats if they are bad)
I will post pics as soon as I can to show the camber. I don't know how far off it is right now but before the cam it was +3 if not more.

Any help is appreciated

Did you use drop brackets for the beams or cut/turned beams?

The passenger side beam is a lot shorter than the driver side beam so camber change through the travel of the beam will be greater than the driver side. This is why more camber shows up on the passenger side vs the driver side for the same lift height.

Drop bracket was used.
So this is relatively normal? I'll get pics as soon as I can to show how bad it is

Yeah, post some pics and picks of the upper ball joint alignment cam. The nut should be tipped towards the tire.

Did you keep the 2" lift spacer with the 4" lift coil? That might be your problem

Your lower coil retainer has some sort of spacer welded under it giveing it too much lift for the cams to correct for. I have some stock ones if you need them. You can have them for free if you want to pay for shipping or if you are around the riverside area you can pick them up.

BMC- I didn't put the lift together but everything looks correct on both sides. I don't think it was left on.

Tchajagos- you have the lower coil retainer? Let me send photos of the right side this afternoon. They are both the same.

The spring retainer from the weld line down is what is keeping you from being able to align it. Get a pair of stock ones and reinstall the coils. They ARE side specific so make sure you get a driver and passenger.
