I hit the wall pretty hard about a month ago and messed up the right side of my car, before I hit, I had -3 RF camber, and +1 3/4 LF camber, after I hit I had none, I've looked over the a-arms and they don't look like they're bent, I've had to add as many spacers in the right, and take all of them out of the left to get them to lean again. Obviously something is wrong, I'm just not sure what. The only thing I've changed was put a spring spacer on the left rear because it was sitting to low because I had to put extra weight in. I'm running 11" springs in the front, don't know if it sitting that low and raising the back would cause me to lose my camber or not, but it's just a thought, the frame isn't bent either. Anyone have any thoughts?

I changed the offsets on the front too, I went from 4's to a 3 LF, and a 2 RF.

It's that way on both sides, not just the side I hit the wall with, that's why I'm confused. If it were just the right side I could see that, but both sides?

No, I run stock ball joints.

Haven't had a gauge on it to check the caster yet, I had to put an intake gasket on and do some other stuff to my engine and haven't had a chance this week, but I'm gonna get into it more next week. I'll let you guys know when I find the problem.

Have you checked your ball joints?

Not yet, it's been raining everyday this week and my car's outside, so I haven't had a chance to look at the suspension yet. If it ever quits raining I'll check everything out.

crossmember is probably bent. just went through that last weekend. If you hit the wall, something IS bent.
