Here is my alignment sheet, based on this I would expect more wear on my rears, cords are visible on both front tires but not the rears.

That's correct and a good move

See for me the OEM is out for a reason this is not a VW or a Buick it's a performance vehicle and should have Camber!! A lot are obsessed with all 0's it's not correct and should NOT be achieved JMO!

@SRTBLK your not out much at all in fact almost right at what it comes with from the factory looks good!

We just did a 2014 no Drop with 15k on the odometer and the inner tire wear was heavy but expected!

Re: RM - mids and camber/control arms

Thanks for the clarification....when I think about it after lowering I have been pushing it more especially when cornering....because it just handles so much better lowered!

thats a good idea, had mine realigned after driving on lowered springs for a week, about three months ago. as you can see above got a lot of inner front tire wear. just for curiousity, got it realigned again today, toe was negative out of spec in front and this explains why my fronts were so worn compared to the rears. as a bonus, after this realignment, my rear is closer to spec than before.

Re: RM - mids and camber/control arms

Still not happy with how my fronts are wearing! Is anybody having problems with rubbing my fronts especially the passenger side rubs? Need a fix before I put new tires on.

Help, help me please!!

You are not even lowered are you what's rubbing the wheels

Front upper arms are still being working on machine shop has dropped the ball miserably. I have another company on a front fix aside from ours too so two options are on the way as of now no good fix.

Re: RM - mids and camber/control arms

Eventually with only aftermarket springs, the stock struts will give out. Anyone have to replace struts? Not sure how strong the OEM struts are.

Re: RM - mids and camber/control arms

Chad, I lowered mine about 3 months ago with a little rub on heavy bumps. I went with eibach with the least amount of drop which was 0.9 in the front & 0.8 in the rear. I'm rubbing on the front passager side on the big bumps. I'm also running 22" as well.

Could it be my shock is shot or is it a ft. control arm thing?

Hard to Say I don't do a lt of the Eibach stuff so as far as feedback from customers all I have is "get these off my truck" LOL

I may have someting for you soon you can try the shocks but IMO If I remember the wheels I think it's the offset like I had mentioned to Steve this is wh he never lowered it have you asked him?
