    Rear camber adjustment on a 2010 Limited AWD

    Getting the dreaded inside rear tire wear on my 2010. Just by looking at it, I can tell its rear spring sag. I'm sure new struts and springs would cure the issue, but it's an awfully pricey solution. Especially since they're in otherwise good shape. Looking into a rear adjustable camber set...

    Alignment repair & issues/concerns

    About a year ago I took my 2017 XLT in to my local Ford dealership for an alignment fix, as the car was pulling to the right and the steering wheel had to be held slightly off-centre in order to drive straight down the road. When I picked up the car and saw the invoice, I learned that the...

    Camber Problems

    My camber has always been just a little bit off, so when I needed new lower ball joints and tie rods, I figured that would fix the problem (I replaced the uppers about 20,000 miles ago). Instead it's actually worse after doing the job. Is there something that I could have done wrong to make it...

    Serious Shaking Between 6-75mph

    So, my truck shakes pretty good between 60 and 75mph. Over 75mph it doesn't shake so bad, just a little. Under 60, it doesn't really shake at all. I figured it is the alignment, but what else might it be?
