Lift and allignment issues.

Hi. As you guys know I'm considering adding a little extra lift to my Rancho 4". I resolved that part of the problem could be resolved by adding the same number in inches in spacers under the radius arm but then realized that with the extra lift the tires ar going to be rubbing the outside edge of the tire pretty bad. Will the adjustable camber bushing help fix this? I only plan on adding another 1 or 2 inches. (I've also considered welding a spacer in place and lowering the shock tower an inch). If the adjustment bushing won't help then I guess there is no point in trying to add more altitude since I'm in no position right now to buy more lift brackets and I really do like the Rancho setup as is. Thanx. NORM

Re: Lift and allignment issues.

thats why I am going to buy the dick cepek kit the 4in kit and the 6 in kit are the same for the front except for the coils so that when inchitis gets the best of me all it will cost me is for the new coils and the rear springs

It almost surely won't work Norm. It's unlikely the camber bushings will allow enough adjustment, you'll have too much positive camber.

Re: Lift and allignment issues.

You did get the Ingall's adjustable bushings....didn't you?
They'll go up to 2-3/4° camber adjustment.
Any idea what they're at now?
1" lift translates (roughly) to needing another 1/2° adjustment.

Re: Lift and allignment issues.

I went from stock to 2" and I can't seem to get a good alignment, replaced all four BJ Tie rods even bought the dropdown brackets and Ingalls bushingsd but still look like this \ /. [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] I decided to save and get a 6" lift but haven't decided from who yet. If you would drive my truck and get on a road that has a slight crown on it You swear that your steering is shot- this is my biggest pet peeve on my truck.
