Question Camber/Caster... can they be modified??

While recently dropping my x-fer to do some "dental work" I notice some uneven wear on the tires; specifically it looks like camber problems. From what I can see (and from previous experience in Jeeps with solid axles) camber is usually not adjustable, but lifts can actually cause axle caster to change and consequently create camber issues. My D-90 was lifted approximately 3 inch by the previous owner using springs and Ranchos. Is there anything that can be done (besides a lot of rotation) that can help with this new camber issue?

Any ideas/input is greatly appreciated.


Stranger in a strange land... I went from a CJ to a D-90 in the middle of Redneck KY - now everyone looks at me funny (I think its because they need teeth!)

A bit odd nobody has replied yet,
easiest choice would be modified arms to cope with the lift.

scott , what kind of wear? what kind of tires? Caster is thrown off by a 3 inch , but the effects are light steering /tendency to wander with road. Alignment and toe could cause quick wear. So could balance, pressure, tread type and infrequent rotation of a agressive tread. Rock on JP
