Does anyone know how to change the camber/caster on a 4wd Ram. It has a strait axle front. It is an 82' W150 with a 2" lift and 31's. It keeps eating the front tires on the outside. This has to be changable since it never did it before.

if your truck has leaf springs on the front, about the only thing that can be changed is the toe. thats unless your axle has eccentrics for the ball joints that will allow you to adjust the camber. adjusting the caster doesnt really affect tire wire, caster is more for how it is going to handle going over a bump and you being able to steer it. its not safe but you can adjust the cast and your pinion angle at the same time with a shim. your problem could be worn bushing in the leaf springs, worn ball joints, worn bearings, worn tie rod ends.
