    you wouldnt want a slammed 4x4 to have zero camber. the tires would nail the fenders because they stick out stock

    Thats like saying you dont want to do anything to an engine that will give it anymore power than stock.:rolleyes:

    Yea it kind of interesting that you guys brought this up. I originally started with my truck when people where saying its impossible, get a 2wd frame. So that kept the drive, 2 years later i have the rear end of my 4dr 4x4 bagged with a wishbone keeping the stock tank and not cutting the floor. The front end i had the idea and dubbmotorsports.com put it into reality. I dont trust myself to weld somethin like that. So now i have a shaved 4dr blaze 4x4 on air ride, with fully functional 4x4. You go to car shows and everyone looks and is like, is that a 4x4? So my plate is now BAGD4X4

    ya but a 4x4 with a 5" + static drop (being ride height) with zero camber would have the fenders sitting on the tires, a little negative camber and then the tires tuck up and under the fender.

    hes talking abotu a bagged 4x4.. 1 degree is the maximum camber the front end shoudl have to operate correctly and be to close to factory specs, to get that much camber that your speaking of to tuck the wheels in the fenders for "ride height" your gonna need at least 4+ degrees more then liekly alot more than that, hope you have a big wallet for the tires you are going to put on every week.

    running that much camber and caster is just plain stupid...

    the thread title was talking about lowering... ya bagged at ride height you can have a 4x4 get close to 0/1 degree. not sure where my alignment is at since i havent done it since the drop (on my 4wd). tires last me a show season.
