    Unless they can come up with some way that the lift has bent your axle, it can't otherwise be causing ANY Change in camber. It's called a "solid axle" for a reason... it's solid. The only way to...

    Well, after initially loving it, then being so-so about it, and recently hating it, I'm on a mission to do away with the full height rear door.
    It probably worked well when the camper was new, but...

    Redthies, are you running real (expensive) tire balancing beads, or airsoft or regular BB's? I'm about to try heavy airsoft BB's in my tires just for fun. Balance is good w/o weights, but I do...

    No. Adjustable arms can be used to change overall caster on the front axle, but not to adjust left and right caster independently. That is to say that no matter how much you try, you're not going...

    Bad news... the cross caster is built into the axle. You can swap the brackets around all you want and cross caster isn't going to change other than within the tolerance of the machine, which is...

    If kb7our is willing, we're going to try a camber shim on the left instead. Camber and caster both affect pull, and he's so close to neutral that either should make a difference. Oh his solid axle...

    White is good, but I would look for something that goes on smooth. If the bedliner has grip stuff in it, I'd find something else. If not, then it might work fine! Seriously, check out the garage...

    Comparing E 235/85's to C 31x10.50's (I've never seen a D 31x10.50) is like comparing apples to oranges, and it has less to do with the load range than the size. If you have lots of HP, then a wider...

    When my rope broke, it was under perhaps 7-8000lbs. It didn't exactly "fall to the ground" like everyone says it does. Mind you I wasn't using any sort of weight over the rope. (From what I've...

    You are correct. The other advantage is that the alum hawse is lighter. Generally a LOT lighter! That adds to the weight savings that the synthetic line affords. I'm not saying nobody should run...
