    Arrow front end alignment?

    hey guys whats up........i cut my front coils springs and i was wondering if an alignment would help out how the wheels "tilt" inward, the negative camber is what i think its called. my tires are wearing down REALLY fast so any help would be great. i

    am also tryin to find some cheap lowered coil springs, and does anybody know if those will fix my tire problem? anybody have some for sale? i tried to see if Mike (blazinlow) still has his but i cant get in touch with him

    thanks

    LOL

    The alignment will fix that.

    I can't believe that you were driving it like that.

    If you get the cash, lowered control arms are the best way to go IMHO. Spindles are good too. I've got Belltech spindles and springs on the front of my sten and it bottoms out all the time.

    LCA aren't the best way. The hang to close to the ground and for most people, they seem to break on daily drivers. I've never heard anything good about them from friends of mine that have used them. Everybody says go spindles and springs for a reason.

    And you should always get an alignment after tampering with the front suspension. What funny is I haven't had mine aligned yet either, but tomorrow morning it gets it. But I had it drop Friday. There's no camber on my wheels either. The alignment actually didn't really change on my truck, but I can tell it's a LITTLE off.
