    I went to the Jeep the Mac and Drummond island this weekend. It was very cool. Jeep heaven. Found out that yes the tubes even on the Dana 44 are weak. My cheapest answer is the moog ball joints. I have to order them according to what my camber read at the alignment shop.

    Could be ball joints or unit bearings. Check both.

    I had a 4x4 mechanics shop tell me today that the -0.8 Camber on the left and right front axle is what is called the Jeep Smile, and can't be fixed with anything he would trust up in the Rockies. (Attached)

    I've been searching around and see some people bending axles back, or trying ball joints or bearings or shims... anything work in this case?

    The camber isn't really all that bad. Caster has a .4 deg split which could contribute to your pull. I agree the adjustable parts can make the alignment guy look good on the print out, but tend to "adjust" themselves off road and usually cause more problems. I would just run it and rotate often. Every 3-5000 miles including the spare if you can.

    Your camber is pretty high as well. Spec is like 4.2 or somewhere around there.

    You can try some shims to fix the camber. I think SPC makes a one degree kit and maybe a half degree kit.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
