Hi guys, just lowered my 2005 silverado Z71. I used belltech spindles and mcgaughys keys. Worst experience ive ever had, but thats an entirely different topic. Just think 6 michigan winters/salt and you'll understand.
I'm at 2 degrees negative camber (top tipped in) and the adjustment bolts are maxed out. couple questions:

I know inside edge tire wear will be an issue, is 2 degrees going to be realy bad? What is factory, 0 degrees?

Would the belltech camber adjustment kit be my best option to cure this?

Thanks in advance gentlemen. LOVE the way it looks, pics will follow this weekend when my SS wheels go back on :)

2* isn't bad but it isn't ideal either. belltech 4951 adjustment cams can get you 1* extra and the bushings can get you 2*. so if you got both you could get ~3* adjustment more.

thanks for the responses guys. After fighting with every single rusted bolt/nut and passenger side torsion bar key rusted solid to the torsion bar, AND having the shackle bolts seized in the shackle bushing and leaf spring bushing which required cutting the stock shackle bolts out, pressing out the old bushings and in new bushings while the leafs were on the truck :ninja:, I am going to hold off on any more wrenching for a little bit. Eventually i think I'll go with the offset A-arm bushings, but for right now, I'll live with it and rotate the tires VERY often.

I projected that this drop would take about 8 hours to complete. ended up being nearly 30 when it was all said and done :lazer:
anyway, here's a teaser pic until I get my SS wheels on this weekend. remember it's a Z71 :) with stock 265/70/17 tires
