Alignment problem

I have a camber problem on my CJ7. The top of the tires are tilting outwards making the outer side of the tires wear out fast.

I have a 86CJ7 with the Dana 30 SOA, shackle reversal, JCW springs.

I have been told there is no adjustment for camber. How do I fix this?

Re: Alignment problem

you can use shim between the spindle and knuckle, or an adjustable screw in cam where the upper balljoint goes into

But how did it get that way? Balljoint problem? It should still be factory geometry unless something is wrong shouldn't it?
