Are you talking about too much negative or positive camber?

Are the stock adjustments not significant enough for your needs?

Any feedback would be great and pics would be better.

Maybe I should have been more clear. What are your current camber specs when on the rack with the alignment equipment hooked up? What are the readings?

I have not been to a shop yet I just bought this about a month ago and havent been able to take it to a shop the guy before me sectioned the upper control arms that was the reason i wanted to know about tubular ones because not sure if they were done correctly but I have found some at Airbagit.com first thing im going to do is pull some shims and see if I can get it close and then It will be off to a shop for an alignment but if all else fails I'll be getting the ones from them
