    i had to pull a bolt out of the left front one, it was ripping the lugs on the tire :p:

    put some new wheels on, tires are 245/50r16. they are bald, so i put the stockers back on till i save up for some 235/60r16. the 50's were just too damn short.

    and no, i STILL haven't gotten the ubolts to drop the rear... i bought a kit from autozone, but the ubolts were for a 3.5" axle, not a 2.5". now its too late to return them, so i just got lazy and left it like that... for now.

    It's a popular misconception that camber causes wear...it doesn't. Toe is what causes wear, because you are constantly scrubbing the tires. On the other hand, the whole hella flush thing just looks retarded.

    any mis alignment will cause tire wear.... caster, camber, toe, any of those not with in spec will wear your tires, or cause shitty steering, or driving issues.

    to say that toe will only cause tire wear is just plain foolish....

    I knew this would cause me problems.
    If you have any kind of toe, in or out, you are always scrubbing your tires.
    Caster has no effect on wear, it just helps to keep the vehicle going straight and to maintain a full contact patch when cornering.
    Camber has no effect on wear when going in a staight line, because you are not scrubbing the tires. When cornering, camber comes in effect because of contact patch.

    Anyway, here's more.

    with camber, you are going to have pre-mature wear in a certain spot from the load not being distributed evenly across the tire like its meant to.

    I can walk on the outside of my feet and not scrub them across the floor and end up with blisters. To me, thats wear.

    Nah, you just walk funny. :D

    Regardless, you don't want to drive a vehicle with no toe anyway, they wander all over the place. So my point is really just kinda silly.

    finally got the new rubber mounted and balanced, and the rear dropped... she needs a little more attention, then she'll be the perfect dd.
