This seems strange. Has the truck ever been wrecked?

Well beebani (member on here) makes some adjustable uppers. Don't know if that would accomplish what you want. Seems strange that it would see that different of adjustment from side to side. He also makes adjustable lowers, but I believe they only adjust the caster.

Here's a link to beebani's eBay sale for them.

HOLY HELL!!!! $400 bucks a piece? WOW!

My bad,,,,,,,,,,I just went back and seen it was both sides.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Something isn't right if you turned both torsions equal,,,,,you should have even camber.

Are you 100% sure your answer to Gordo was correct? It seems your have a twisted frame or something.

Default how do i find beebani

I have a 1994 d-21. i recently lowered it 2 inches in the front and 3 in the rear. the alignment shop told me that they can't get the alignment correct. they told me that it needs either shorter upper control arms or longer lower control arms. I bought the truck from the original owner and i know that it was never wrecked. i keep seeing that someone named beebani custom makes upper adjustable control arms for my truck. I just can't figure out how to get ahold of beebani customs to get them. I even watched their youtube video. Please help

I got the beebani adjustable upper control arms to fix my positive camber after lowering with belltech drop spindles. They are a very nicely made and were able to be adjusted enough to get my trucks alignment back in spec. They are very pricey though and he makes them when he has spare time as they are his second job and he has a family as well. So plan on waiting a couple months to get them after you order. It was worth the wait for me to get my tires to stop rubbing though.

The best solution would be to install drop spindles. Also, any alignment shop should be able to correct the camber for just 2” of drop. I’d try some other shop.
