front right tire is toed out...

I have talked to many different people about this and i get a different answer each time. The right tire of my truck toes out really bad making the whole right side of my truck sag down. it looks really bad. I have tooken it in for an aliment, and it did nothing, they told me it was a leaf sping, replaced that did not help. Its not the ball joints there tight. I replaced the tie rod ends. The last thing i have head was the alinment cam could be bad. I do not have any pics right now of it but when i say toe, i mean the tire is not stright up and down..... the left side is... i do have the IFS...
am i making sence at all??

You had it aligned and the shop didn't notice the problem or offer suggestions.

Thats strange because the shops I have been to, alway look to get into your hip pocket if they can find something wrong.

The shop I use will not charge if a part is too worn to align. They just tell me what to replace, then I take it back.

Check the axle mount bracket where they attach to the cross member. I had similar problems with my truck. The bolt ears on the bracket fatigue and break off. The shop found nothing wrong until the bracket failed completely and I found it. The local dealer stocks several for each side as it is a common problem or so they say. Mine was a 95. Good luck.

When the lift was installed on my truck, the camber was way off. I still need to get this adjusted. I am working on a shackle reversal that will take care of this. The front end shop put in new camber adjustment pieces that were at the maximum. The parts are available if they frontend shop knows what they are doing.

Didn't think of that, but a good thing to check.
