How to adjust my alingment

  • 1998 CHEVROLET S-10
  • 196,000 MILES

Truck is on courser mt 30x9.5x15 ith the tortion bars cranked up all the way so the tires dont rub, the truck has 0 inches of lift.I replaced all the inners, outers, ball joints and cv axles, trucks wheels look like / \. I see that there are cam bolts in the uppers, none in lowers, truck is on a jack but just enough to take off pressure, gonna use a framing square to get it close, my question is, does the bolt spin or the nut? They both have the cam wheels and I dont want to just go all gung ho and snap anything. Truck is eating up new and the new idler arm(didnt rotate the tires when I changed the parts, the front tires were cupped).I tried to adjust the drivers side rear most cam bolt, and the bolt and nut both slightly turned. I dont ant to make this worse, how high should I jack it up?

Do you
have the same problem?

When yo lift a truck like that you screw up the suspension andit can't make up the difference from being lifted with big tires. You really need to put a front end kit on it so that it can be brought more into line. The nut spins. Have fun and get used to replacing frt end parts
