Alignment Question

I am trying to align my 92 F150. I have done the toe in and toe out, but I am having trouble with the Caster and Camber?? The vertical alignment? I am running 30X9.50 right now. I was wondering if I aligned these smaller tires, would my 33X12.50 be aligned also? Or woudl I have to realign my front end everytime I change my tires over?? Like I said I have figured out the tie rod adjustments for toe in and toe out, but Im having trouble with the ball join adjustment for vertical alignment. I am going to try work on it some more. It costs way to much to have it aligned in my hometown, and the mechanic started to use a tape measure to do it so I told him I can do that myself. Well any opinions or ideas would be greatly appreciated [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] thanks guys

then why are you asking us questions??? [img]images/graemlins/chair.gif[/img][/slam_time]

The bigger tires will be easier to home align, but to save on the cost of tires, spend the $60 for the job or better yet $110 for a lifetime job.

Re: Alignment Question

Search this site for some ideas. There is an adjustable caster camber bushing you can get through NAPA. I learned through trial and error with the adjustable bushing and a bubble level to get it right. It helped to get and have the specs from a friend at Big O. You really can find most questions already answered on this site by using the Search. This is a common question. If you can't do it yourself, get a lifetime alignment so you can go back when it gets out again.

Re: Alignment Question

I second the SEARCH suggestion. Both WD40 and Juice have started some decent TTB alignment threads here. In all of them, I'm sure, I preached the evils of TTB and how caster affects camber and vice-versa.

You'll be asking about an SAS in 6 months [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/spank.gif[/img]
