Camber Changing

I was just wondering if any body else has experienced a problem with their 2wd lift and the camber changing. I have a 2000 F-150 with the 5.4L and put the Fabtech 6.5 ultimate system on. When I received the truck the camber was perfect then about 2000 miles later the camber started going negative in the front. They said to take it back and they will look at it. I was curious if this always happens or maybe the heavy motor changed it. I hardly take it off road so I am confused and a little upset.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]. Please help.

Re: Camber Changing

Any new springs compress after a while.. Metal does fatigue when under strain.. Keep an eye on it tho to make sure you dont sink much more a few months from now.. I have heard and seen the company Flabtech gets their spring from can be a little on the soft side..

Re: Camber Changing

And not just Fabtech. Any lift is going to cause strain on caster and camber angles. Alignments on modified vehicles are not a perfect science either.

It also doesn't matter if you take it on or off road. especially with the highway system lately! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Camber Changing

Well got the truck back from Fabtech. They did an awesome job getting her back to normal. I guess the trucks need to go back for a re-torque on all the components about 1000 miles after installation. Well i went back after 200[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img]. So it wasn't anything broken just that the springs settled out and i went back too soon. So thanks again for your replies and you guys hit the nail on the head!

Re: Camber Changing

The problem with your springs or the reason why the camber changed is because you stuck those damn springs too far up your a$$. j/k what up Ry-Dog check out my profile
