My front wheels have negative camber after I cranked the torsion bar down to give me about a 3" drop on my 4x4 Durango. Took the Dur. to a alignment shop and they told me that they couldn't fix it. I'm going to try one or two more shops. If they can't do it then I'm going to crank to torsiion bar back out and figure out a way to lower the 4x4 Durango in the front. Any ideas how to fix the negative camber and/or get something custom made to lower the front of the 4x4?

I'm also bottoming out in the rear (3" blocks installed) even though I cut the bump stops in half. I'm running Bistein shocks and am going to put zip ties around them to see if they are bottoming out. Would going with shorter shocks make me bottom out even more?

If I am bottoming out on the bump stops in the rear, is there something to soften it up that I could use?

I know that this is not exactly the forum to post this in but you guys have the most KNOWLEDGE!

By the way I'm have 23" KMC rims... with the tires they are about 32"s in diameter.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to f up my Pirelli tires with that negative camber.

only way to fix this is to extend your upper a-arms. a couple inches.

for the bottoming out, try to see if anyone has some air shocks that will fit your ride. Keep in mind the air shocks are NOT to raise and lower you ride like bags, but to try and soften up the ride in the rear.

you don't work on many vehicles do you?? most modern 4 wheel drives have struts. as a matter of fact the 2003 BMW X5 that I am doing suspension work on right now at work has struts in the front!

don't they make a lowering spindle for the durango? if they do, get that. for the rear buy some lowered springs that are stiffer. not blocks. that should cure all your bottoming out problems. you spent mad dough on the rims dont get cheap on the suspension.

Nevermind, you got a double wishbone style front suspension on that truck. you are going to have to either see if the lowering control arms for a 2wd are compatible or extend the upper control arms.
