grease the bushings. when lowered it throws off the camber and will wear your tires very quickly

My alignment is within specs...I greased all the new parts I installed but I didn't remove the control arm it the bushings.

You definitely have improper camber. Everyone with a lowered jeep has it. JBA UCAs will correct that though.

No, I DO NOT have improper camber...I am within specs! And no, not everyone with a lowered jeep has this issue. The ones that dont have read up on uti;izing the slot in the lower control arm to get within specs...looks like you have some homework to catch up on!

there is not enough "play" in the slot to bring it back. Sure there is room for improvement over the original position. but it's still out.

I've also read it will vary between different springs, bwoodys, h&r, eibachs as to how much camper you will get, it will also appear worse with bigger wheels.

Mine are adjusted, with 22's on H&Rs and bilsteins and I still have improper camber. and I know of many more people in the same position.
