    The first thing I would try is to rotate the spindles. That is how they do alingment at the factory (that or they try another spindle). I always mark mine befor I take them off (left and right as well as rotation....ie: some spray paint). It will be a pain to do but you might be able to match up the rust pattern to see where they were befor you took it apart.

    I had my blazer re-aligned and the tires are tipped out at the top also. I think this is the way is supposed to be. And I also have a 10 bolt.
