    Gonna do ball joints etc pretty soon on my 10B...I'm noticing that the outer edges of my tires are much more worn than the inners...no feathering or unusual wear on either side, but considerably more wear outer than inner (don't think it's just from turnin' corners)...question is do they make such a thing as caster/camber sleeves that allow you to set camber in order to do a more complete alignment, or do ya gotta heat and bend expensive stuff, or will replacing the ball joints, etc sorta automatically bring things into spec (assuming axle tube,etc ain't bent)...

    It depends, if your ball joints have play in them you might be OK when you replace, however if not, there are sleeves that go on the top ball joint IIRC and there is a special tool to set it up, it's an offset sleeve.

    Check your toe in. My tires were wearing the same way until I reset my toe.
