Issue with reverse, oh JOY!

To begin, I bought this truck a bit over a month ago, it has 16x12s on it. I have since put 16x8s on it but have not done a trans flush or additives yet. Sonce i bought it ive had this issue. When I shift into reverse it feels low on power and I feel a binding jerk. When I go straight back on level ground it doesnt se to do it as much. I noticed that there isnt much clearance between the wheel and hub. It still does it with narrower wheels. Is there a loose or worn component in front suspension or is it a trans issue. Also want to mention on rever my front bows up and creates a positive camber.

Pull forward and measure the distance from the top of the tire to the inner wheel well straight up. Reverse for 15' and measure again. Did the front "squat"? Replace twin eye beam bushing and inspect radius arm bushings for dry/craking.

Sorry, camping right now and just went into town to do some laundry and the place next door has WiFi. Sweet. By that pic you need to rebuild/replace ALL front end wearables. TTB bushings and radius arm bushings. With the worn parts up front in reverse you are dragging against your own suspension. Replacing the parts will get rid of almost all your current reversing woes. No matter what you do you won't get it all. Suspension not designed for continuos reverse driving.

Nice, you camping up at ft bragg? Do some fishing? So TTB is what the i beam bushings? How many bushings are we talking about? I think my wheel hubs and bearings a done too. Also wanted to ask bro, does the e4od have bands that need to be tightened?

Twin I-Beam is 4x2 trucks Twin Treaction Beams is for 4x4 trucks. Put your hand on one of the beams and follow it up to where it mounts to the K-Member (engine cross support). Looking in there you'll see the bushing that supports the camber of the beam (not the tires camber). I think it comes as a set per side (like A-arm bushings on a car there is a forward and rear busing for one beam).

Hubs and hub bearings are easy fixes. Pack the wheel bearings correctly or you'll be doing them again.

E4OD has one band and it's not adjustable. Having take off problems?

Fishing in the eastern Sierra's. Right now on Mammoth mountain.
