    Does anyone know how to adjust the camber for a dana 60? The king pin bushings are new and its still out,but the top of the tire is leaning out and the bottom in. If the housing was bent or parts wore i would think it would be the opposite because of the weight of the truck.I was told to have the housing bent!!!!! This is not what i would like to do. Any help??

    Thanks
    Gregg

    You can get spindle shims for them. Not sure where, mine came with steel ones.

    What is your D-60 out of ? GM-Ford-Dodge! On my Blazer when I was putting the front axle together I noticed has soon as I put the spindles on something didnt look right,both spindles were angled down slightly.I had just put Ford steering knuckles on a GM 60 housing and fiquired that Ford must have different camber specs than GM and its built in the knuckles. You dont even notice it now that its altogether and the Blazer drives and steers excellent!
