I know increasing the downhill angle of the uppers or increase the up hill angle of the lowers is suppose to help. Just how do you go about adjusting your control arms? Do I try to adjust both upper and lower or just one or the other?

Are you talking about rear trailing arms or front upper and lower control arms?

it's just a matter of getting an angle finder and setting them where you want them mine are level on the lowers and down hill about 25* on the uppers.
