    ok... so im going to need camber bolts to adjust the negative camber after i put my 2" coils in. the problem is the djm ones are expensive as **** but there are aftermarket ones that are quite a bit cheaper.

    the question i have is, what is the degree of adjustment needed for 2" drop? from rock auto, they have Reybestos ones that adjust +,- 2 1/4 degrees. is that enough? some from say JEGS dont even specify...
    are they universal or whats the deal? i dont want to buy the wrong ones.

  3. The Raybestos ones should be enough. Unless you have some major front end issues, you'll never need more than that.

    lol yea ill have to do some searching and hopefully more will chime in. i was so pissed tho, i called DJM tech support and asked what degree of adjustment i would need. "i have no clue" was his answer just gave me part number for 95 up explorer camber bolts. err like wtf, i might just call again and ask for a manager or someone with some damn knowledge on this
  7. That's why I'd rather deal with local companies that I can go and talk to and they can take a look at my truck. I'm not a big fan of over the phone orders and questions

    I think you might need a +/- 3 degree bolt kit. Personally I'd take it to a professional alignment center before ordering the bolts. OR see if they have them in stock. Most good alignment shops stock parts for aftermarket suspension mods. I know my shop does.

    ok thanks, i think ill give the alignment shop for sure tomorrow then before i order anything

    well i called the alignment shop, they basically said until they get it there they dont know how much itl be off. they should be able to get different ones he said if it wont work. i just got the 2-1/4 ones. the ones straight from djm were only 2 degrees so i think these should be good. some "tech support" they've got too, called them again, not helpful
