Camber adjustment issue after RC 2" lift - need advise

Hey guys,

So i went in for my alignment this weekend at a reputable shop that strictly does alignments. I was told by the mechanic/owner that the camber on my car was going to be off roughly 1-2 degrees and that my tires are bowed outwards very slightly.

He mentioned to me that he had went as far as he could on the lower control arm and that i would need an adjustment kit inorder to bring the tires to correct alignment/spec.

Is this a true statement? or is there a kit for help adjust this further? if there is a kit, i don't think ive ever heard anyone with a WK needing it. I read a post by ROBPP and mentioned this to the mechanic, but he still told me i would need a kit to be able to further adjust the camber.

thread i found with Rob's post:

wk lift problem alignment

Just need some advice on what i should do now.

thanks!


**EDIT**

found some part references in some old threads... would these do the trick?

Re: Camber adjustment issue after RC 2" lift - need advise

The Eibach 5.23410K ball joints will do the trick. I have a pair that I took off of my lowered SRT8. They are incompatible with the lowered SRT8 because of shock tower clearance issues. For a lifted Jeep they will allow the camber to be brought back within spec. PM me if you want to buy the pair.
