lift- camber question

i have am 06 quad cab 2x4 and wanted to put a 4-5 inch lift on it. when you lift these trucks it adds positive camber to the wheels because the suspension is extended. is there a way to bring the camber back to where it was with a lift- negative camber- so that the outside of the tires arent wearing quicker?

You need to drop the upper mounting point of the I-beams. This generally is included in a complete suspension system. You also need to either drop the radius arm or a get a replacement radius arm.

You need a bracket for that. The bracket would bolt on to the spot where the i-beams are mounted.

I'll check on the availability and pricing on the Fabtech 2wd systems.

They offer a basic and performance system.

2wd 05-07 super duty

Pro Comp has a lift for you as well. You are also going to want to get the alignment cams so you can actually adjust the camber.
