    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted to say hello to everyone, Im a newbe here and just had a quick question.

    within the last year I got a levelling kit put on my truck, but the rear end is much lower then my front end now, and my camber is off causing uneven tire wear. I recently noticed the camber off when I saw the tire wear, and noticed it looked sort of funny when it was done but didn't think it was that bad. now because my rear end is quite a bit lower, ive heard of putting blocks in the rear end. can anyone help me out with understanding where these blocks go and how easy they are to make?

    P.S you guys are awesome here, ive been going through the other threads and there is so much info here!

    welcome to the site, the blocks go under the leafspings and dont make them buy them, the rear being lower than the front wont throw camber out of spec but will throw caster out but that angle does not wear tires, check the front end for loose parts
    worn ball joints can cause edge wear that looks like a caster problem

    Thanks for your reply! i think i worded that wrong up there lol, camber is the angle of your tires isnt it (top in, bottom out)?

    Yes, camber is the vertical line looking from the front of the truck. Did you have the truck aligned after the leveling kit?

    Four wheel alignment is an absolute scam with a pickup. Ask them how they change the alignment on the rear wheels.
