    Doing An Alignment sort of....

    I put my truck on the alignment machine the other day because the front tires wear on the inside tread pretty fast, I realized that I upper control is mounted to the inside of the frame. So I cant adjust it, should also note that all my suspension and steering bushings and ball joints are shot out. Is possible that the frame is bent or warped?

    I don't remember what machine I think it is hunter winalignment something something dark side.... anyways if I shim it, it will only make it worse. So my lower control arm bushing should fix that then. Worth a shot. Thanks man.
