I just wanted to get everyone's opinion on how many degree's of camber is too much at full droop. Thanks

Greg has/ had to on his ranger. He rolled it now, but look up his sig, and you will see a picture of the truck. It had some pretty wild camber in the air.

When it starts to look stupid...that's too much! Or when at full droop you tires tread surface touches less than .5.

When the Ribbed section of the sidewall touchs before the tread does....

What your actually seeing in that pic is the tires on they're way back up from bouncing off each other, just kidding. I know it looks crazy but I tried everything in regards to limiting straps and the like and the way you see it worked best. Equal length beams (much longer than stock) are the best solution to keeping camber change to a minimum. Hopefully by new years my new beams will be done (aluminum ya know) and sticking with the center mount radius arms. Just so people know, all that travel on my hooptie is aceived using urethane bushings on both the rad. arms and beams, total budget truck. Another note, if building your own beams make sure to mount them as low on the frame as possible to prevent the front from jacking.

Greg, what kind of beams do you have in that pic? And are their limiting straps on there?

Greg-

I really wanna see how the 7570 T-6 will hold up. That is a crazy idea though. =) Hope the IP meeting went well. Hope to be out there soon.

I trust my machining abilities more than my welding. And they should actually take less time for me to build than a fabricated peice. also, material will run about $200 for the pair...not too bad. Fish, there are no limit straps in that pic, i just let those big, primative shocks top-out. There's nothing in them to break and they're stronger than any strap I'd buy.

The Old Duralast truck looked as good as I-beams are going to look at full droop. Thats the bummer with I-Beams. They don't look like A-arms at droop do they....
