I see your photos of your gen 1 . Why so much camber? Is it something about gen 2 or 3 rangers that have more positive camber when slammed out? Every 94+ I see don't lean in like the square bodys. Wasnt sure if you did drop beams

I can't speak for the OP's situation, but up to 87 (maybe 88) the 2wd beams had a funky ball joint arrangement with stupid small holes for the camber adjusters, which left about 2* as the biggest one you could get. It makes aligning them with a lot of lift or drop and PITA.
