That is correct, when I did my balljoints I put the sleeves in that came with the axle, I'm sure they were zero sleeves. There is pretty detailed information on that site about installing the sleeve and making sure it's oriented correctly in the knuckle to give you the correct camber adjustment, in my case half a degree positive.
step 34, sounds right....torque threaded sleeve to 50ftlbs.
Might be a good install to do a quick writeup on.
When you did new balljoints upon installing your solid axle, you should have had new sleeves as well (I know I did), and I'm sure those were basically a zero sleeve.
The price I was quoted from this place was almost $27 bucks and that was before shipping for one of the sleeves, I'm only going to need one. The person I spoke with said they have a distributor locally that probably would carry them for less.
At this point I just want to have it done and finished, so I plan on paying someone to do the work, who knows maybe the guy would let me take some pics..
Now the $64K dollar question. Based on what I've posted, would you guys agree that installing the 1/2 degree sleeve coupled with relocating the R/A brackets should be sufficient to get my axle properly set up?
that's a good site link though. I'll be interested to see what jeremy's price is. I need to take my truck to the alignment shop since doing a bunch of frontend work (I want current numbers on toe, camber, caster). If I am running a bit more + camber than I'd like, I know where to get the sleeves in nice 1/8th" increments to fine tune the front some more (I'd do this install, not the shop, I'd only let the shop adjust toe for me since I'm only as accurate as my garage tools allow).
