2006 3.6 and 105k miles Apparently after 3 sets from the dealer they barely last 10k miles. I'm wondering if there is a urethane upgrade/insert. I'm not letting the dealer do these again so want something stronger. I don't have a bent frame or any damage to it. Alignment is good except the negative camber can't be adjusted on this truck. (Inside of tires bald after 40k miles which isn't bad for low pros) has anybody else gone through this many lcas?
It's barely off its not that bad but there aren't any adjustments for the camber on these. 40k miles before 1" of the inside tires wear. So it's not really off like when I had lowered hondas and went through tires in months vs years on this truck. The lca to frame bushings are what keeps popping and creaking.
Yes both sides were almost identical as far as the negative camber. All tires even with religious rotations. Its not making any sense to go through this many lcas. I know Ford cars and trucks burn through them but something isn't right for this truck to go through them so quickly.
the lower control arms ARE adjustable for camber and caster, i just aligned mine personally last week. The mounting holes are slotted for adjustment. As far as wearing out, what's the problem? Noise, knocking while acceleration, braking, turning? Play in lower control arm bushings? Tire wear?
