Guess what happens when you lower a car?

Then you adjust the suspension so you don't slide off a corner! ; ).

Upper control arms aren't generally that cheap, and only offer so much adjustability. It's a 'pay to play' sort of game. There's zero risk of 'sliding off a corner' if you have any understanding of the effects on drivability. Again, lower a car and deal with negative camber and the effects that come with that.

OK, but negative camber doesn't have to be a bad thing. I ran 2.5-3 degrees on the race car.

I rarely shoot natural light but we where mostly shooting rollers so didn't have that option... def happy with this shot

does it have its own onboard lighting to light up the suspension? wow...crazy rig, I can't imagine trying to pilot that thing...


And big lifted trucks like that tend to run a little positive camber, to offset for suspension compression causing it to go back to negative, so that they maintain a good contact patch on the tires. Ever seen what an oval track car looks like on flat ground...

I run about 2.5 at opposite ends on both my daily & my weekend car.

This truck has a straight axle. It's camber is not affected by the lift because it has no "upper control arms".

I believe this is an optical illusion  :p The green bars are straight and square. I moved them next to each tire.
It looks like the light on the inside and at the top of both front tires is what's causing it to look like negative camber :-D

That and the angles on the front bumper too!

As stated it's a solid axle so lift won't effect the camber I think the combo of the lights (which the truck has one in each wheel well and 2 under the bumper to light things up) and the curve in the road I think is giving that illusion

You're right about the solid axles.

Mine looks similar, though it's been aligned correctly.

That's interesting. I certainly was fooled by that!

I've seen some that I know I wouldn't want to drive at highway speeds.

This is why you don't use the coupon in the paper for your alignment..
