Just finished lifting the bronco 6”, installed axle pivot drop brackets, radius arm drop brackets, a new extended pitman arm, etc. Is this allignable? A shop near by said they could align it for (up to) $360. I know that’s a ridiculous amount of money for an alignment but I’m done messing with the suspension myself and that one shop was the only shop to respond to my emails. I’ve heard about camber bushings but not sure if there are any out there that could put this back into spec. Does anyone have a good guess of how much degrees this is out camber wise? It’s on 33s for reference btw. Been a member since 2014 and this is my first post, so please take it easy on me haha

Holy cow!

Moog k80108 I believe is the adjustable camber bushing you need.

The springs will settle a bit and help, but not that much!

Or the Springs are too long and/or stiff. Or not seated in their perches all the way.

yeah something in that lift isn't right..that's a hell of a lot of camber to make up with the adjustable bushings..

did you install the coil springs upside down? Also who is the lift manufacturer.

It almost looks like the drop brackets are in the wrong spot. Here's my 4" procomp. The 6" holes are below. I can do more pictures if that is helpful at all.

I would start with adjusting your toe, then drive the truck forward, say 60 feet without backing up and see what it looks like. 6' lift should not be that big of a deal with drop brackets; 10" I could see it being an issue.. Curious what it looks like after you adjust your tie rod ends.

I'm using the same brackets:

Thanks for all the feedback everyone! I just posted another thread on what happened after I took it to a shop. The guys at the shop said I needed longer tie rod ends to adjust toe, and my camber is still quite out

Desolate Motor sports has adjustable camber/caster shims that will adjust up to 2.5 degrees. Also it may take some time for the coils to "settle" to their normal ride height. It will also depend upon what motor you have due to the variables in weight. Alignments can run expensive the first time due to the stock shims rusting into the beams and onto the ball joints. It may take some heat and an air chisel to remove the old ones.
