front axle help 95 f250

So i know my ball joints r shot and prob needs new springs. But b4 i go buying parts what y'all think i should repair. My problem is negative camber and when reversing extreme negative camber as well as tire directions being different from eachother like one tire slightly turned the other straight. Only happens in reverse

The only "repair" for this is a Dana 60 conversion. This is just one of those things the TTB 50 does in reverse. It's not like you're going far/fast enough to affect tire wear. But yeah, it does look disconcerting after you back into a parking space and step out of the truck. If you don't like the way the truck looks after backing in, just pull forward a foot or so before shutting down....

New springs helped my truck out a lot. So much so that I have slightly positive camber now. Makes it so I am feathering the outside of the front tires. I rotate them a couple times a year. Springs were only $150 at the local spring shop.

If you do the springs, do them first so you can see if you need to adjust camber on the upper ball joint.

Ya im familiar with the tbb just never owned one. Ya yesterday i had a guy running at me at fredmyer yelling "stop your axle is falling apart". I just wanted to make sure i was on the right track about ball joints and springs. I might just do a add a leaf and ball joints. I wanted xpr but should i just roll with moog or spicer?

I only install Spicer ball joints in everything I own. Moog quality seems to have gone down a LOT int he past few years.

Can you take a picture of it?

Edit: A little camber in is normal when backing up, what's the camber when it's stopped after going forward?
