    i lifted my 69 s.b. truck yesterday and the damn thing looks pegon toed! the top of the tires lean out, its identical on both sides. i lifted a ton of solid axle trucks and i have never seen this before, but most of the chevys ive lifted hve been like 79 and newer, does this old drum brake 44 have different camber settings? (4in lift, no shims) WTF. thx for any info--j.c.

    It will be a closed knuckle front but not birfields.It has u-joints in the knuckle.Maybe the trunion(sp) bearings are shot.They have these instead of ball joints.

    chevrules...always has and always will

    I have the same problem. I replaacced all the ball joints and tierods. D44 can be adjusted at ball joints for front end alignment. mine wasn't really noticable with 31's. Really noticable with 35's. Localalignment shopsays that is cured with alignment.
