Front end, older F250

Have a 1992, great old truck, low miler but a victim of the old Ford front end geometry - the tires sit like this from a front view: / \ . I'm sure they're fine when driving or I'd see fast inside tread wear. I've replaced all the spring packs with the heaviest available and SD shocks - didn't make much difference. How to straighten the old girl up?

In my experience its the upper ball joints. I do alot of serious off roading with my '94. It has a 4" lift with a lockright locker in the front. I have to put balljoints in it about every 50-60k.

ball joints, wheel bearings, alignment, and just the TTB setup does that LOL...

us straight axle guys have it too, but to a lesser degree.

If it is a twin I beam their is a camber adjustment bushing to change the angle. Also if you have a lift on it, the braket where the axle pivots has 2 bolt holes in it, drill another hole in between the 2 holes and it will also change the pitch of the wheels.
