Over cranked torsion bars?
I have had my bfgs a/t tires for four years and I have finally noticed that the cambers on every tire is almost completely warn down, would over cranked torsion bars cause this? As my suburban is pretty level which makes me think the torsion bars are cranked up max, i dont know who did this but i think the original tire installers may have done this.K1500 5.7L Chevy Suburban

If it's sitting level, it's doubtful the T-bars are cranked. Sub are notorious for saggy asses. I would start at an alignment shop.
And what are "cambers" on a tire?When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.

if im using the right word, cambers are the outer part of the tire tread. I have coil over shocks in the rear which completely removed any sag i had. Ive kept current with alignments as well.

I agree with"2COR517", have the alignment checked first. Good luck!

Usually refer to the outer parts of the tread as the shoulder. You either have worn frontend components, worn shocks, alignment issues, or maybe drive a little "aggressively". Or most likely, a little of all. I think it's time for a new shop. Had my truck done by guys I thought were very good. My toe in was over 1/2". Not going there anymore.

I went in and got another alignment today and didn't realize i had put 9000miles on since my last alignment, i could tell the alignment helped with the steering as well. The shocks have not been replaced in the last 100k miles as they are the bilstein lifetime warranty shocks, but i have thought about replacing them anyways as its hard to believe something could last that long with all of the abuse its subject to over 100k miles. ball joints were all replaced recently along with steering linkage and steering gearbox.
